Football Origins: Mohamed Kallon

Mohamed Kallon spent three good seasons at Inter where he nearly won the league and made a Champions League final. He ended up his playing days in China, but not before a stint at FC Kallon. So popular was he in his country, that Freetown club Sierra Fisheries was renamed ‘F.C. Kallon’ in the year 2000. Confusingly, that wasn’t because Kallon had bought the club. He did eventually, but only two years and several negotiations later.
