The relationship between Mateja Kezman and Paris Saint-Germain is over as the striker has agreed to a mutual termination of his contract, the Ligue 1 side have announced via their official website.
Signed in the summer of 2008 initially on a loan deal, Kezman has never settled at the Parc des Princes and was shipped out on loan to Zenit St. Petersburg in the summer of 2009. Finally, a difficult affair has ended.
“Paris Saint-Germain and Mateja Kezman have reached an agreement today to terminate the player's contract,” a statement from les Rouge et Bleu reads. “The club wishes to thank Mateja for his professionalism during his time under the colours of Paris. We wish him every success for the rest of his career.”
The mercurial 31-year-old always had a somewhat fractious relationship with the club and courted controversy when he threw his team’s shirt to the pitch as he stormed off when substituted out of a Coupe de France match in February 2009 by then-coach Paul Le Guen.
Kezman’s stock never recovered after that incident, and despite a promising pre-season campaign the former Partizan, PSV and Chelsea striker has failed to make any kind of impression in the first team this season.
