Cape Town - Injury-stricken midfielder Philani Shange lambasted Chippa United for being mistreated after his contract was terminated last month.

Not long after signing a two-year contract in July 2015, Shange fractured his shin in just his second match for the club.

Shange returned to fitness late last season after spending five months with his leg in a cast.

Despite claiming to have another year on his contract, Shange was dropped by the Port Elizabeth outfit.

"I had a two-year contract with Chippa and I have a copy of that contract but my manager Mzamo Manzi has now told me that they have terminated that contract," he told KickOff.

"Nothing was ever explained to me by my manager and I am now stuck here.

"I didn't even receive my salary last month and I also didn't get my signing on fees for last season. When I personally approached Chippa Mpengesi, he told me to get a lawyer to deal with my contract grievances with the club.

"I have training all along and all I need is to get into a competitive environment and get going again.

"The contract situation with Chippa is straining, but I just need to get back to playing football again and move on with my life."
