Cape Town - Mpumalanga Black Aces have allowed striker Mabuthi Khenyeza to depart the club, with the well-travelled marksman returning to his former team Golden Arrows.

Khenyeza spent a season and a half at Aces after having joined the club from Ajax Cape Town, where he has had two spells.

The KwaZulu-Natal-born striker has also played for Kaizer Chiefs, Mamelodi Sundowns, SuperSport United and Arrows, who were his first professional team, where he scored 43 goals in 114 matches between 2002 and 2007.

"He always wanted to go back home to be close to his family and focus on some businesses there and we thought we must allow him," club spokesman Gordon Masondo was quoted as saying by the AfricanFootball website.

"To be honest, he also complained a lot about travelling from and to Durban, so all in all it’s true he’s gone back to Golden Arrows. He’s finally joined the team he first played for and we thank him for his service at Aces."

Khenyeza started in only four league matches for Aces this season, during which time he scored one goal.

Arrows currently play in South Africa’s second tier, the National First Division, after being relegated from the Premiership last season.

The club are coached by former Bafana Bafana striker Shaun Bartlett and are in second position on the standings.
