It was a deadline-day deal that saw Kei Kamara join the New England Revolution in May 2016. Despite the hastiness of the transaction, Kamara predicts that he’ll be in Foxborough for the foreseeable future.
The topic was recently brought up by Jason Davis of Sirius XM. Davis simply asked Kamara if he sees himself wearing Revs colors next year. The forward’s response was pretty straight-forward.
“Yes, definitely. I mean, I’m here and I still have years on my contract,” Kamara stated.
Since becoming a member of the Revolution, Kamara has collected five goals and one assist in 18 appearances. It’s a far cry from the numbers expected from last year’s Golden Boot runner-up.
Still, Kamara has shown flashes of brilliance that could bode well for the future. The 32-year-old was dynamic when facing his former team for the first time since the trade. Two months later, he had a two-goal performance against the Montreal Impact. His second go-around against the Impact was almost as good, as he had a goal and assist.
Despite this, Kamara knows that he could be traded at any time. Since becoming a professional soccer player in 2006, Kamara has been with seven different clubs, including two stints with Crew SC. This had taught him that anything can happen.
“I expected to be a Crew player for three years and that didn’t happen,” Kamara noted. “I’ve been in this league for a long time. I’ve been moved around. You can never get too comfortable in one place.”
For now, however, Kamara is happy to be in New England and ready to make a push for the playoffs.
“I’m here, I’m giving my 110% best every day and I definitely look forward to continuing to play here for as long as I can,” Kamara said.
