Malawian striker Chiukepo Msowoya has finally parted ways with South Africa’s champions Orlando Pirates after less than three season’s harmony with the club.
Orlando pirates announced the end of Chiukepo’s contract in a statement on the official website of the club (www.orlandopiratesfc.com).
“Orlando Pirates management and Malawian international Chiukepo Msowoya have reached an agreement for his release following a meeting between both parties as of August 23.
“The club would like to thank Mr Msowoya for his services and wish him all the best in his future endeavors,” read the statement in part.
Recently, Chiukepo failed to clinch a deal with TUKS University and when this happened Flames coach Kinnah Phiri in an interview with Malawi News Agency (MANA) said it would be better for the star to come back to the domestic football scene.
“I told him to think of coming back home to join a local team where he would have enough game time and keep fit and in shape because we also need of him for the Ghana game and other national engagements which are coming,” said Phiri in an earlier.
Phiri said he encouraged Msowoya that all is not lost as he is still young. All he had to do is to come back home and pick things up for himself again.
Msowoya joined the Bucaneers in 2010 from Mozambican side club Liga Muculmana but struggled to make the starting lineup and was eventually loaned out to another Premier Soccer League outfit Platinum Stars last season.
