Although Football is a sport of emotional discipline and respect, the President of Sierra Leone Football Association, Isha Johansen has reiterated that she will slap Sierra Leone Football Legend, Mohamed Kallon again.
In an interview with New York Times in the United States of America, Isha Johansen, unlike FIFA World Player of the Year, Zenide Zedan, Luiz Suarez and host of other football stars who have apologized for questionable conducts, has shown no remorse that she slapped Mohamed Kallon over an issue at the FA’s headquarters after a football match
When asked about the episode, she smiled guiltily. ‘I slapped him,’ she admitted. This was after she denied to the Police that she did not slap Mohamed Kallon back home in Sierra Leone.
The FA President boasted, “And I will do it again. I just went in with the right. It was a self-defense.”
She further told the Medium that Mohamed Kallon insulted her and grabbed her by the arm, leaving her no choice but to hit him.
With such record of slapping, Isha told the medium that despite the chaos in Sierra Leone, she believed she has something to offer soccer and added that she might make a bid to become FIFA’s President ‘possibly in four years’
