Chippa United release Burkina Faso international Panandetiguiri

Posted: 12 February 2014 Time: 19:28

Chippa United have released Burkina Faso international Saidou Panandetiguiri, who battled for regular game-time in Cape Town.

Despite his sizeable profile, Panandetiguiri never made an impact at Chippa and he is now expected to continue with his nomadic tendencies that have already seen him play in Belgium, Malta, Portugal, Germany and France.

Peter Koutroulis, the CEO at Chippa, confirmed that the 29-year-old has left the National First Division club.

“He (Panandetiguiri) has left the club after we released him following an agreement to terminate his contract. The truth is that he was a high earner but not a regular so it didn’t make any sense to keep him. In the first division it is not viable to keep such an expensive player when he is not playing,” says Koutroulis.

Panandetiguiri joined Chippa last July after a spell with Belgian club Royal Antwerp, but the experienced wingback had actually been spotted at the 2013 Afcon finals where Burkina Faso reached the final. 

Meanwhile, Koutroulis also confirmed that Nigerian midfielder Solomon Okpako remains on their books despite being out of favour for the first half of the season.

They didn't use him so that they can use that can make that an excuse. This guy is far much better than so many left-backs in Mzansi looking at how he played in the last AFCON.

kleuleu  exactly my point, he commanded Team Burkina's left back very well & Chippa could have said something better other than this
