South African Premier Soccer League side AmaZulu have announced terminating the contract of Ghanaian midfielder Mohammed Awal-Issah.
Awal-Issah went AWOL in November and left the club with no option but to axe the player.
The 27-year-old returned to the club in July after an initial 18-month spell five years ago.
He started just two games and coming on as a substitute twice out of 14 matches.
AmaZulu have since signed Nhlanhla Shabalala and Ruzaigh Gamildien to strengthen the midfield.
?Firstly, we?ve released two players in [Mohammed] Awal and [Letladi] Madubanya so we had to replace them and Shabba comes in with a lot of experience and he?s a defensive and holding midfielder,? AmaZulu head coach Rosslee told Usuthu?s official website.
