The marriage between Kenyan international Masud Juma and South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) side Cape Town City looked destined for failure from the off.
Juma, who signed for the Citizens in January this year after winning the 2017 Kenyan Premier League golden boot while donning Kariobangi Sharks’ jersey, has announced he has terminated his contract with Cape Town, having barely gotten the chance to prove himself.
He briefly wrote on his Facebook account: “I have terminated my contract with Cape Town City FC. I’m a free agent.”
The former Sony Sugar hitman joined Cape Town while nursing an injury which kept him on the sidelines for quite some time.
It was not until March 15 that he made his debut, playing the final 10 minutes in a 1-0 victory over Orlando Pirates in the Nedbank Cup.
He would make his PSL debut on April 4, playing the full 90 minutes for Benni McCarthy’s side in a 1-0 home defeat to Golden Arrows. He netted his first goal for the Citizens on April 7 against Maritzburg United.
In total, he played four league matches for Cape Town, scoring a single goal, and also two matches in the cup competition.
