Masoud Juma released by South Africa’s Cape Town City
Kenyan forward Masoud Juma has been released by South African club Cape Town City, a day to the start of the top flight football league.
Interestingly, the former Kariobangi Sharks striker had taken to social media to make the announcement but later deleted the Facebook post.
“I’m now a free agent,” the deleted post read in part.
Nairobi News has however established from multiple sources that indeed the Harambee Stars forward will not play a part for the Cape Town based club this season.
Benni McCarthy’s squad are expected to confront SuperSport United on the opening match of the league season this weekend.
Juma’s situation at the club is believed to have been worsened by the acquisition of a number of foreigners during the close season.
South African clubs are only allowed to sign and register five foreign players during a league season.
Juma, who made eight competitive appearances, scoring once, becomes the latest in a increasing list of Kenyan footballers who have failed to make the grade in South Africa.
Others are Clifton Miheso, Kevin Omondi, Dennis Odhiambo and Victor Okumu who were all released after a few months.
