Cameroon striker Baldwin Ngwa will not be a Gor Mahia player next season after terminating a one year contract with the side on mutual grounds.
The striker, who was on loan to struggling premiership side Rangers, revealed to Goal.com on Thursday that he had already secured a release letter and will be seeking for greener pastures next season.
“I have just picked my release letter from Gor Mahia offices and will now be a free agent next season,” said the Cameroon striker.
Ngwa said his decision to quit Gor Mahia had been necessitated by the fact that a top Gor Mahia official was upset by his decision to play for Rangers during the decisive league match against Gor Mahia.
“The official (name withheld) insists that I broke my contractual terms by turning out for Rangers against my parent club (Gor Mahia) during the league match that the latter won 2-1.”
“In sincerity, I had spoken to Gor chairman Ambrose Rachiel on the issue before the match and he gave me a go ahead to play and furthermore it was the coach (James Nandwa) who introduced me into the game late on.”
Fifa rules stipulates that a player on loan is not allowed to play against his parent club. When contacted, Gor Mahia secretary George Bwana confirmed that Ngwa had been released but was still a Gor Mahia player until the end of November.
“Yes we have released Ngwa but he remains our player because we are paying his salary until the contract expires. We have no issues with him at all and he will be a free agent after the contract ends.”
