JOHANNESBURG - AmaZulu have parted way with former Kaizer Chiefs marksman Camaldine Abraw. The Togolese international joined Usuthu in January on a six month contract with an option to renew for two seasons at the end of the campaign.

Abraw struggled to find his feet at the club. As the results he spent most of his stint sitting on the bench or in stands. Abraw failed to find the back of the net in five appearances for Usuthu.

AmaZulu's team manager Qedi Dlamini confirmed the departure of Abraw from the club.

"The club had an option to renew the contract of Abraw but we've decided not to exercise the option," he said.

"We expected goals from him as a striker but that didn't happened. If he had scored 8 goals we would have seriously considered renewing his contract. We wish him all the best on his future."

Usuthu have already line up a replacement for Abraw. They have signed Emiliano Tade from Auckland City in New Zealand.

Apart from beefing the striking department the club have also signed Nhlanhla Vilakazi from Free State Stars and Moeneeb Josephs from Bidvest Wits.

"The team will return for Pre-Season on the 18th of June. We are still talking to Orlando Pirates about returning the services of Thembela Sikhakhane. Boalefa Pule will be returning to SuperSport United." Dlamini concluded.
