Crew SC Trades Kei Kamara: Reaction

Today Columbus Crew SC announced trading forward Kei Kamara, who was mentioned as a candidate for MLS MVP last year, to the New England Revolution. This season, however, Kamara had been suspended a game by the team for criticising teammate Frederico Higuain (nicknamed “Pipa”) in the media.

“Kei had a memorable 2015 season and we recognize and understand how popular and productive he was, so this decision was not one we made lightly,” said Sporting Director and Head Coach Gregg Berhalter. “Our actions will always reflect the values of our club and we believe this transaction will improve our competitiveness this year and in future years.”
