Toni Silva job hunting after 394 minutes


Infamous former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Tony Silva is on the lookout for a new club again after things did not work out at Egyptian side Al Ittihad.

The ex-Liverpool winger joined Ittihad in January this year after being sold by Sundowns for a fee in the region of R3-million following a public fallout with coach Pitso Mosimane.

The 25-year-old managed only seven appearances for Ittihad, or 394 minutes, and made two assists in the Egyptian Premier League but has now been let go.

According to a source close to the player, the Guinea-Bissau international's contract was terminated due to financial reasons.

"It has nothing to do with his performance but only financial reasons. I can't disclose more than that and give out more confidential information," the source tells

The informant also revealed that Silva had only signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with the Egyptian side.
