Kaizer Chiefs have confirmed their parting of ways with attacking midfielder Dumisani Zuma following “numerous disciplinary issues”.
The 27-year-old had one year remaining on his contract with the Soweto giants but after a number of suspensions the club opted to release him from his contract.
Zuma was suspened twice during the 2021-22 season, first in November 2021 following his arrest for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol before being suspended in May after having a heated arguement with coach Arthur Zwane.
During his time at Amakhosi since moving from Bloemtein Celtic, Zuma amassed 103 appearancess across all competitions, while scoring 13 goals and assisting a further 11.
“Attacking midfielder Dumisani Zuma’s numerous disciplinary issues have led to the Club letting him go with a year still remaining on his contract,” Chiefs posted on their official Twitter page.
“Since joining from Bloemfontein Celtic in 2017, he has been suspended a number of times, including twice in one season. He was also sent to rehab and counselling in the season that just ended. Over five seasons, he played 100 matches (25 starts + 75 subs) and scored 13 goals.
“We wish Dumi well in the future.”
