Goal now understands, the former Kariobangi Sharks striker decided to end his eight month stay with the Benni McCarthy coached side after realizing that he was facing the axe.
A source within the club has revealed to Goal that Juma was among the five players, who were facing the chop following the arrival of Dutch keeper Peter Leeuwenburgh from Ajax Amsterdam.
“Juma was left frustrated after learning that he could be one of the players to pave way for the new keeper. The rules are very clear that a team signs five foreigners in a season but the arrival of the keeper brought the number to six.
“Cape Town City were also of the opinion that they send him (Juma) on loan to a team in the lower league but the player turned down the offer because the said club does not pay salaries promptly.”
The former Sony Sugar striker announced his exit from Cape Town City in a statement on official facebook account, however, the post was later deleted.
Other players, who could be sacrificed by City are defender Edmilson Dove (Mozambique), midfielder Roland Putsche (Austria), forwards Nana Akosah-Bempah (Ghana), Matthew Rusike (Zimbabwe) and Ugandan winger Allan Kateregga.
