Diomansy Kamara defends Nicolas Jackson amidst FA Cup criticism

Nicolas Jackson

Diomansy Kamara, the mentor of Nicolas Jackson, offered insights regarding Jackson’s recent performance in the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City. Despite the 1-0 defeat, Kamara, the former Lions striker, stood by Jackson, emphasizing the need for patience and development.

Nicolas Jackson’s journey from Casa Sports in Ziguinchor to the elite European football scene, guided by Kamara, has been marked by significant milestones.

Following stints at Villarreal and CD Mirandés, Jackson donned the prestigious Chelsea jersey in 2023, making his mark in the Premier League.

However, Jackson’s recent display against Manchester City, where he missed several clear chances, drew criticism on social media.

In response, Kamara defended the 22-year-old striker, highlighting his overall contributions throughout the season.

“As we have said, he is a young man who is 22 years old. He is still in training. He needs to improve,” Kamara remarked. “We know that he was fishing in the finish.

He still scored 10 goals in the league this season, 14 in total, 4 to 5 assists. For a first season I think it’s not bad, but he’s a young player.”

Kamara drew parallels with the experiences of other high-quality players facing challenges early in their careers.

He referenced Vinicius’s initial struggles at Real Madrid, where the Brazilian forward faced scrutiny for missed opportunities before eventually finding his rhythm.

“We remember the case of Vinicius. When he had just arrived at Real Madrid, he missed a lot of chances and everyone fell on him. And over time, he corrected his situation,” Kamara reflected.

“The most important thing, I think, is that you have to create these situations. And then you’ll have to readjust the sights.”

As Jackson continues his development, Kamara remains steadfast in his support, emphasizing the importance of patience and growth in the young striker’s journey.
