DURBAN – Kaizer Chiefs have parted ways with Zimbabwean marksman Michelle Katsvairo.
The Zimbabwean joined Amakhosi with huge expectations at the start of last season. He failed to make a huge impact at the club. As a result, he was loaned to Singida FC in Tanzaniabefore the current season commenced.
His loan spell in Tanzania was cut short in December after Singida failed to keep up with his salary package. Katsvairo then went back to Chiefs, with an eye to impressing Amakhosi mentor Steve Komphela.
Amakhosi confirmed on their Twitter account that Katsvairo was no longer a Chiefs player.
“The Club has reached mutual agreement on the termination of Michelle Katsvairo’s contract. He is now free to join a team of his choice. We thank him for his service and wish him well on his future endeavours,” the Chiefs statement read.
A well-placed source told Independent Media: “His manager had a meeting with Kaizer Chiefs management a couple of hours ago. They came to a conclusion that it is better to part ways. The two parties were happy to part ways amicably, and they terminated the contract with mutual agreement. Katsvairo is now a free agent. He can join any club that want to render his services.”
Chiefs recently signed Leonardo Castro to beef up their strike-force. He is competing with the likes of Ryan Moon, Bernard Parker and Dumisani Zuma, who is operating as the second striker.
It was clear that Katsvairo was going to find the going too tough at Amakhosi.
Castro netted on debut last week to hand Amakhosi the maximum points against Polokwane City in an Absa Premiership clash.
