Sallieu Bundu (born January 1, 1984 in Bo, Sierra Leone) is a Sierra Leonean soccer player who plays as a striker for Carolina RailHawks in the USL First Division.


Early life

Bundu, who is commonly known by his nickname Teacher, grew up in his hometown of Bo, the second largest city in Sierra Leone. He attended the Bo School, one of the best secondary school in Sierra Leone. At the age of 15, Bundu fled on foot with his mother and siblings to Guinea to escape the civil war in his home country; his father was murdered by rebels. After five years of living in Guinea, Bundu's brother won a US immigrant visa in the Green Card Lottery, allowing the family to settle in the United States.[1]




Bundu settled in Twinsburg, Ohio, and on April 10, 2008, signed with the Cleveland City Stars after impressing head coach Martin Rennie in a trial.[2] He was a revelation in his first season with the team, netting 8 goals in 19 appearances, and on August 23, 2008 scored the winning goal for Cleveland in the USL Second Division championship game. Sallieu Bundu has walked on the way to sign a contract with Carolina RailHawks FC.[3]


Bundu has recently been called up to the Sierra Leone national team.
