Fulham have banished Aboubakar Kamara from the club after police had to be called when the striker got himself involved in a physical confrontation at their training ground earlier in the week.

Having been made to train with the Under-23 side of late, the man who calls himself AK-47 apparently ventured down to Motspur Park on Monday evening intent on resolving his future with Fulham, only to end up getting arrested.

According to the Mail, the Frenchman was arrested on suspicion of actual bodily harm and criminal damage after lashing out at an “on-site member of staff”.

Kamara has been doing his best to fight his way out of Fulham over the past month or so, scrapping with Aleksandar Mitrovic during a club yoga session, stealing penalties (from designated-taker Mitrovic) and missing them, snubbing a proposed move to Turkey, and now this.

The Cottagers have since issued the following statement:

The club is grateful for the swift attention and action by the Metropolitan Police immediately following our reporting of the incident on Monday.

The subject (Kamara) who was arrested is banned indefinitely from Motspur Park and all club activities.

We will refrain from further comment but will stress that we will fully cooperate with any new or continuing investigation or legal proceeding in the name of providing everyone a secure and safe working environment.

A spokesperson for the Met Police added:

He (Kamara) has been taken into custody in a south London police station. Enquiries continue.

 Fulham Football Club. Never a dull day.
