“We had a meeting recently and both parties agreed by mutual consent to part ways.” the Kaizer Chiefs target Gabadinho Mhango said as quoted by Citizen.

“It is a huge relief to me because I was hardly enjoying game time. It has been a stressful season for me and I can’t wait to move on and, hopefully, this will be a new dawn for my career.
