The Guinean arrives from Olympiacos after some troubled months with both the club and the national team. The conversation between Mourinho and Pedro Martins was also decisive
There Rome welcomes the new midfielder who will reinforce the central department of Mourinho. It is about Mady Camara, Guinean class ’97 withdrawn from Olympiacos, on loan with the right of redemption for a total amount exceeding 13 million euros. An important investment on paper, to replace the injured person Wijnaldum which will remain in the pits until the new year. The Greek club had bought it in 2018 for 300 thousand euros fromAjaccio and in four seasons in the red and white jersey he won 3 league titles and a Greek cup.
His role in the training of Pedro Martins (now entrusted to Carlos Corberán) has changed over the years. Before it was also often used on the three-quarterswhile in the last season, he had to retreat his position in fact, also lowering his numbers to an offensive level. In the season that just ended, his job was to supervise the central area of the pitch, also helping on the flanks. Camararight foot, however, is a player who manages to combine quality and quantity and perhaps it was this characteristic that “bewitched” the Portuguese duo Pinto-Mourinho. And also Pedro himself Martins, that he spent himself with the Special One. The two know each other, they have touched at the Port, it was probably the chat with the colleague that convinced the technician of the Rome to give the final go-ahead for the Guinean.
Last year Camara collected 45 appearances scoring 2 goals, both in Europe, in what was his least prolific season with the red and white shirt. In fact, the Guinean in previous years had made 4 (season 20/21), 7 (season 19/20) and 6 (season 18/19) proving to have a good feeling with the goal as well as great defensive skills. After three seasons as an unmovable starter, the last season for Camara was rather troubled as also admitted by himself: “Collectively, the year was good, successful. For me personally, I can’t say it was a dream, it wasn’t what I wanted. Football is like that, these things happen and I will focus on next year, for improve. What I want to think about is how to progress, improve and respond better on the pitch. “ The Guinean has slowly lost ground and consideration and has often sat on the bench or was even left at home due to some delays during the technical meetings. The Greek media have justified this obvious decline in him, with the the boy’s willingness to move to a top European club. Objective achieved, one might say.
Camara comes to Rome as a substitute for Wijnaldum, even if it has totally different characteristics. The class of ’97 is a median, the Dutchman plus an insertion midfielder who can play in any midfield role given the technical and tactical level. Also Camara, as mentioned, however, he does not disdain to disengage himself in the attacking phase and seek the joy of the goal. It is an alternative to the two medians, who in such a season (up to World there Rome will play 18 games in 75 days) will do a lot comfortable. And the arrival in the capital was somehow his destiny: time ago Mady posted on Twitter a photo as a kid with some friends. He, Camara, he wore a team shirt: yes, that of the Rome of the 2001/02, the year after the Scudetto. In the end that uniform will dress her seriously, certainly also on the push of Kostas Manolas, his now former teammate at Olympiacos. Now he hopes to retrace Yaya’s footsteps as well Toure, his idol, and become a symbol for his country, Africa, remaining at the top levels for many years.
Camara he did his debut with the Guinean national team shirt on 9 September 2018 for the qualifying match for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations against the Republic of South Africa. This year, however, the class of ’97 did not take part in the expedition of Diawara and companions for the competition due to a misunderstanding, according to him, with the technician: “There was a misunderstanding with the manager who thought I wanted to avoid the call-up despite Olympiacos having sent my details. injury. I have not lived an easy year, I want help the team to achieve its goals. The call from the national team has not yet arrived, but I hope it will “, the player had told. The trigger for the failure to call was the refusal on the part of Camara to take part in the commitments of the Guinea a few months earlier. The midfielder had reported a injury with the club thus asking his national team to be allowed to stay in Greece to be treated, but the federation of his country did not want to hear reasons, believing it was just a way not to respond to the call.
