Be Forward Wanderers have parted ways with Cameroonian goalkeeper, Hamza Etoga Noah, less than a year into his two-year contract.
The Nomads signed Hamza in the off-season break after impressing in three pre-season games.
Wanderers General Secretary, Mike Butao, said the goal-minder, who came into the country from Nigeria, was released on mutual consent after failing to make the grade at Lali Lubani Road.
“He came to us asking to be released. He was unhappy with his inability to break into the first team. So, we simply granted him his wish,” Butao said.
He said the release was also necessary because the Cameroonian indicated that someone within the team’s set-up was sabotaging his career.
“So, we felt it was not fair to keep someone who was unhappy in the team, especially being a foreigner. But it was amicable,” Butao stated.
He parried fears that Hamza’s departure could trigger a crisis should first-choice goalkeeper, Richard Chipuwa, be unavailable.
Butao said veteran Valence Kamzere, who also doubles as Goalkeeper Trainer, Nenani Juwaya and Effort Mahala are all options.
Hamza had, in earlier interviews, said he was unhappy with not being given game-time.
“I have teams in Europe’s lower divisions looking for my services but they cannot sign me when I am not playing. They are asking for video clips of the games I am playing here and I have nothing to give them. They only know me from the time I was in Nigeria,” he said at the time.
Wanderers Team Manager, Steve Madeira, said Hamza did not disclose his next destination and only said he was returning to Cameroon.
