Vukile Mngqibisa terminates contract with University of Pretoria

Defender Vukile Mngqibisa has explained the reason behind his contract termination with University of Pretoria after just one season at the club.
Mngqibisa joined Tuks at the start of last season from Polokwane City but unfortunately picked up a knee injury in November that saw him missed a large chunk of the season, which saw Shaun Bartlett's side relegated from the PSL.
The defender, however, has since recovered and says he decision to terminate his contract with the Tshwane side was brought on by his desire to play in the top flight.
"Nothing much happened, but as you know the club was relegated so I decided to terminate my contract with them," Mngqibisa tells KickOff.com.
"I decided to leave the club because I feel I have so much to offer in the PSL. I don't want to go further into much details of what happened at Tuks, but all I can say is that I'm very fit and eager to make my mark at any club, because as I have said, the injury came at the wrong time for me."
The 28-year-old centre back featured only in Tuks' opening three games of the season before suffering a freak knee-injury in a friendly match in early November, and explains how frustrating it was not to help the team avoid the drop.
"It was very frustrating to see the team struggle the way they did while I was on the sidelines," he adds.
"And to make matters worse the club lost their PSL status, which made the situation even harder for me."
Mngqibisa has followed the likes of Washington Arubi, Mpho Maruping, Thabo Mosadi, Vuyisile Ntombayithethi, Lennox Bacela, Thabo Mnyamane, Thabiso Nkoana and Atusaye Nyondo on the way out of the NFD club.
