INTERVIEW: Sangare has 'unfinished business'

Stanley's first summer signing can't wait to show the fans what he can do

31 May 2022

First summer signing Mo Sangare says he has 'unfinished business' with Accrington Stanley after signing a two-year contract with the Reds.

The midfielder put pen to paper on a deal today which will start once his contract expires at Newcastle United.

Sangare attended Accrington and Rossendale College as a teenager when he first came to England from Liberia, and spent time with Stanley's development squad but could not get a work permit.

He was spotted by Newcastle while playing for a team in Stockport, went for a trial and impressed, playing for their Under-18s and Under-23 side during his time in the North East.

John Coleman signed him on loan two seasons ago but a bad hamstring injury restricted the 23-year-old to just four appearances for the Reds, at a time when there were no fans in the stadium due to COVID-19.

Sangare said: "I couldn't wait to come back, it's an opportunity and I took it. This place was like home when I was first here, it all started here, and it will be good to play in front of the fans.

"I only played four games and I feel I have unfinished business. I need people to see what I am capable of and what I can do and coming back here and being injury free (hopefully) will show the people what they missed.

"The injury was hard, I had never been injured in my life and that got me for a bit. It was a tough year and a bit and it tested my character.

"It taught me a lot and, from that perspective, it made me better as a person and I learnt how important it is to keep people who are vital around you to support you mentally and physically.

"Now I can't wait to get going, it's not pressure, it's opportunity. Being here on loan was exciting, I loved every second of it, and now it's almost like starting from where I left off."
