Leopards make big decision on Dax


Black Leopards have confirmed the termination of Madagascar international Andriamirado Andrianarimanana's contract.

The former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder's foreign spot at the club will now be taken by Lesotho international Tumelo Khutlang, who was not registered with the PSL at the beginning of the season.

'Dax' arrived in South Africa in 2018 and joined Chiefs but left for Black Leopards in 2019 following all the controversy that caused Amakhosi's two-window FIFA transfer ban.

"Ya no, he's gone," Leopards CEO Moudy Mudzielwana confirms to KickOff.com.

"It was amicable. He was also not settled that boy, I think that this thing of Chiefs affected him a lot. You saw him during the Kaizer Chiefs game.

"He got in but I think I asked the technical team why did they put him in knowing he was not ready to play against Chiefs, because this thing that is affecting Chiefs is also getting to him.

"He then said he was thinking of going back home during the second phase of registration. Ya he's gone home. We reached a decision that he can go.

"But even his agent was saying he doesn't think the local teams in Madagascar can be able to pay for him. Ya then another thing, we wanted to register this boy from Lesotho [Khutlang], he was not registered."
