Robin Ngalande, Zira FC part ways
Azerbaijan club, Zira FC, have parted with Flames striker Robin Ngalande on mutual agreement.
The club announced on its website the termination of the deal.
“Zira FC parted ways with Robin Ngalande. The contract was terminated on the basis of mutual agreement with the Malawi striker. Zira FC wishes Robin a success in his future career,” reported the club.
However, Ngalande manager, Paul Mitchel could neither confirm nor deny.
“Not completely as yet they have money issues so we are trying to get Robin out. He trained yesterday so just wait for me to confirm,” Mitchel said.
The former Civo Service United player has been too mobile in his football career and has struggled to settle for a club in recent years.
Ngalande came into the limelight when he was playing for Malawi under-17 national football team at the Africa Youth Championship in Algeria in 2010.
Then, South African giants, Mamelodi Sundowns signed him before he was spotted by Atletico Madrid.
He just played for Madrid for two years before he returned to South Africa to join Bidvest Wits. At Wits, he struggled for game time and was loaned to several clubs including Platinum Stars and Ajax Cape Town. He also had a stint with Baroka FC before moving to Azerbaijan.
