It is understood that having been banished from first team training by manager Claudio Ranieri for being a disruptive influence, Kamara arrived at the training ground on Monday intent on resolving his future with Fulham CEO Alistair Mackintosh. But his visit ended with him being arrested. 

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: ‘Police were called to a training ground in New Malden, shortly after 17.00hrs on Monday, 21 January to reports of a fight. 

‘Officers attended. One man, in his 20s, was arrested on suspicion of ABH and criminal damage. 

‘He has been taken into custody in a south London police station. Enquiries continue.’ 

In a statement, Fulham said: ‘The Club is grateful for the swift attention and action by the Metropolitan Police immediately following our reporting of the incident on Monday. 

‘The subject who was arrested is banned indefinitely from Motspur Park and all club activities.

‘We will refrain from further comment but will stress that we will fully cooperate with any new or continuing investigation or legal proceeding in the name of providing everyone a secure and safe working environment.’ 

The incident is the latest controversy to have engulfed the 23-year-old in recent weeks. 

Kamara was allegedly involved in another fight with team mate Aleksandar Mitrovic earlier this month during a team yoga session. 

Manager Ranieri has frozen Kamara out of his plans, with the striker being linked with a move to Turkey.

On Saturday, Kamara posted a cryptic message in French to Instagram, alongside a picture of a phoenix rising from the flames.

The striker wrote: ‘Amazement the human being forgets very quickly. Just the time to go from one floor to another and everything is forgotten.

‘It is much easier to point a finger at someone than to know how to recognise the sacrifices, the contributions and the benefits that this person has had in a “group”. A penalty failed, a false altercation as it happens every day in each team is a sidelining.

‘Recognition speaks so low, and defamation is hailed. Ingratitude for some and racism for others are commonplace in this world.

‘It is much easier to forget than to praise, to denigrate rather than to remember what the man has done well.

‘Every man has the right to error, #BigFine claimed for a penalty, failed fortunately without consequence. To believe that I did not want to score to win this game.

‘To finish, boxing to boxer football to footballer and yoga for all. There has never been a fight in the meantime, hello.

‘Thank you for those who support me the phoenix is ​​always reborn from the ashes it seems.’

KAMARA’S TROUBLES THIS SEASON 

1. Penalty row with Aleksandar Mitrovic, December 29, 2018

Ranieri said he wanted ‘to kill’ Kamara after he insisted on taking a penalty against his manager’s orders in Fulham’s 1-0 win over Huddersfield. 

The bizarre incident, made worse by Kamara’s subsequent miss from the spot, happened in the 82nd minute of the Premier League encounter with the score goalless at Craven Cottage.

As soon as the penalty was awarded, Kamara wrestled the ball from top scorer Mitrovic and ignored all attempts from his team-mates to get the ball back to the Serbian. 

Kamara’s effort was saved by Jonas Lossl before Mitrovic grabbed a late winner to spare the Frenchman’s blushes.

2. Alleged fight with Mitrovic during a team yoga session

Kamara and Mitrovic were allegedly pulled apart after a fight during a team yoga session in the wake of their penalty row.

According to The Sun, the fight was sparked when Kamara started speaking during a moment of silence.

Mitrovic told his fellow striker to ‘shut up’ in no uncertain terms and the pair had to be pulled away by other squad members. 

3. Arrest on suspicion of actual bodily harm at club’s training ground

Police were called to Fulham’s base in Motspur Park early Monday evening due to reports of an altercation involving the French striker. 

Karama was arrested after the incident and has now been banned from the training ground and club activities.

He had already been banished from first team training by Claudio Ranieri but could now leave the club before the transfer window closes.
