AmaZulu have parted ways with Ayabulela Konqobe after the club decided to terminate the contract of the former South African youth international defender.
The 23-year-old centre-back has been with the KwaZulu-Natal outfit from halfway through the season, having joined the team after spending a season with Chippa United.
AmaZulu's media officer, Brilliant Mkhathini, confirmed to the Siya crew that the player has been released from the Durban-based club.
"It's something that happened this morning (Monday). We can't reveal the details, and all I can confirm is that we have agreed to go separate ways," Mkhathini told the Siya crew.
"We don't want to dwell much on it. We don't want to knock future relations for him. We don't want that to take the centre of attention. We need a focused team," added the Usuthu official.
Konqobe was on his third spell with AmaZulu, as he was previously with the club in 2015 on loan from Ajax Cape Town, and had also been signed by the side after helping Thanda Royal Zulu in winning the NFD title during the 2016/17 season, before he was signed by Chippa United in a swap deal involving Rhulani Manzini.
In February 2016, during the player’s loan stint with AmaZulu from Ajax, the KZN club terminated his contract and that of Avela Cezu with immediate effect, with Usuthu’s Lunga Sokhela confirming at the time, “Both players failed to adhere to the club’s rules, and so their contracts have been terminated with immediate effect.”
