Cape Town – Chippa United confirmed in a statement that they have parted ways with striker, Bongani Ndulula.

The termination of the 27-year-old's contract is the latest blow to the former South Africa international's once promising career. He was once dubbed the next Benni McCarthy after his record breaking goal scoring exploits with the national U23 side.

His 15 goals in 14 games for the youth national team saw him fast tracked into Orlando Pirates first-team set-up where he featured alongside McCarthy in the in the 2011/12 treble winning season.

However, since then his career has been on a downward spiral, despite picking up nine senior caps and scoring two goals, Ndulula has only played 92 minutes of first-team football over the past two seasons - being released from Kaizer Chiefs and now the Chilli Boys.

"Chippa United can confirm that striker; Bongani 'Drogba' Ndulula has been released from the Club," said a statement released.

"The 26-year-old joined ChilliBoys 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."
