Fans of English football will probably only remember Kei Kamara for his fairly unsuccessful spells with Norwich City and Middlesbrough.
However, in MLS he has done well at most clubs he’s played for and has never been one to shy away from confronting issues of all shapes and sizes.
In a video posted to Twitter, Kamara revealed that he had been fined $1,250 (£962) for wearing Trusox, a brand of socks that are designed to help prevent blisters and are worn, amongst others, by Gareth Bale.
The problem with wearing these socks in MLS is the league has a strict dress-code policy due to its partnership with Adidas and obviously Trusox break this, hence the fine Kamara received.
Kamara’s video shows how he has a doctor’s note explaining he needs these socks because of his toes.
He also explains that he was told by the Players’ Union that he is a high-profile player which is why the league may have fined him, but he then shows pictures of US national team stars Michael Bradley and Jozy Altidore wearing the socks. Bit awkward.
Of course, as fines aren’t public knowledge it’s entirely plausible that Bradley and Altidore were fined and just happily paid the fines, but then again they are paid between six to eight times more than Kamara…
