Chippa part ways with Ndulula

The ex-Bafana Bafana hitman initially linked up with Chippa in the off-season after being off-loaded by Kaizer Chiefs, having only made five substitute outings for Amakhosi last term.

However, fitness issues saw him lose favour with coach Dan Malesela, prompting talk he was on the way of the Chilli Boys.

The Port Elizabeth-based outfit have since released a statement, which reads: 'Chippa United can confirm that striker; Bongani ‘Drogba’ Ndulula has been released from the Club.

'The 26-year-old joined Chilli Boys at the start of the season but struggled to find a place in Dan Malesela’s preferred starting X1 prompting the early departure from the football club.

'The club would like to thank Bongani Ndulula for his professionalism throughout his short stint in Port Elizabeth. The player carried himself as a professional and had a good relationship with the supporters.

'We would also like to thank him and his management team for the manner in which they handled the negotiations between the two parties. We wish the player all the best in his future endeavours.'
