Sierra Leone forward Kei Kamara says joining Major League Soccer side CF Montreal is a dream come true.
The 37-year-old signed a season-long deal with the Canadian club on Friday, with an option to extend the contract for a further year.
“It’s always amazing when your dreams come true, and this is one of them to play for Montreal,” Kamara was quoted saying.
“I feel great, it’s a place I know best and Montreal is a team I have always had interest in playing for.”
“I’m looking forward to joining the group and adding something that will help our season become successful.”
Kamara is returning to MLS after a year away, spending the better part of last season without a club before briefly joining Finnish side HIFK.
The veteran striker insists his move to Montreal shows he is not yet ready for his career to wind down.
“I don’t see myself slowing down for no reason,” he said.
“I have taken good care of myself my whole career just to make it to this point so I have to reward myself for all my sacrifices over the years.”
Kamara is expected to make his debut for Montreal against Orlando City on 27 February in their opening match of the 2022 MLS season.
The former Norwich and Middlesbrough player will be playing for his ninth MLS club.
He previously played for Vancouver Whitecaps, San Jose Earthquakes, Houston Dynamo and Sporting Kansas City.
Others include New England Revolution, Colorado Rapids, Minnesota United and Columbus Crew, with whom he had two spells.
