Winners don’t quit, but also quitters don’t win. It remains to be seen which side of that coin Uganda Cranes left back Godfrey Walusimbi falls.
Walusimbi parted ways with Kaizer Chiefs on mutual consent on Thursday afternoon just five months into his two year contract.
“Kaizer Chiefs have parted ways with left-back Godfrey Walusimbi. The player has opted to go back home to Uganda,” the club posted on their official social media pages.
The former SC Villa player here in Uganda however has decided to end his two year deal because of personal reasons.
Football-256 reliably understands Walusimbi wanted more playing time at the club which Chiefs coach Ernest Middendrop couldn’t guarantee hence the mutual separation between the two parties.
“They signed Nigerian (Daniel Akpeyi) goalkeeper from Chippa United for one year and five months to cover Khune (Itumeleng) who got injured. Walu (Walusimbi) was to move in opposite direction for loan till June but refused,” a source told www.football-256.com.
“Chiefs have also promoted Happy moshiane from reserve team who coach prefers and reason why Walu got fed up and opted out,” the source added.
The lanky wing back who was involved in a protracted transfer saga with former side Gor Mahia joined the South African giants in August 2018 signing a two year deal in the process.
Walusimbi managed to feature in at least 20 games for the Amakhosi picking up an assist in the Soweto Derby when Orlando Pirates defeated Kaizer Chiefs 3-1 last year.
Walusimbi started out at SC Villa before joining then Bunnamwaya now Vipers before having a short pro stint with Don Bosco in Democratic Republic of Congo.
Came back home before joining Gor Mahia where he built a cult hero status leading them to 3 league titles before leaving for Kaizer Chiefs.
It remains to be seen which club he will feature for for the remaining part of the season but this website understands that Walusimbi might join a European club.
Walusimbi joins defender Ivan Bukenya and midfielder Sula Matovu who tenures at Chiefs were cut short at a club David Obua enjoyed a cult hero status.
