Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Stuart Baxter has revealed that Mark Mayambela was released from his contract because of his poor work ethic.

Mayambela lasted only four months at Matsatsantsa after his contract was terminated, having joined in January under the reign of Stuart Baxter.

The midfielder found the going tough under Baxter and in the end the two parties agreed it would be best to part ways.

"The club has to give an official statement. We made demands of our players and we made demands of their behaviour on and off the field," Baxter told KickOff.

"Mark fell short, despite me giving him a heads up of what we expect and he didn't go a lot better. You've got a bit of responsibility somewhere about football, society and the kids watching you play, so the club parted company with him.

"They have to give an official statement of what they did, but that is the secret... and the club will have to come with some agreement with him [about his package]."
