Girabola clubs release ex PSL players



Two former Premier Soccer League footballers are to be released by their Angolan clubs at end of the season.

Zambia international Felix Katongo, a member of his country’s African Nations Cup winning side earlier this year, and the Malawian international defender James Sangala are both set to leave their GiraBola outfits

Petro Atletico have announced their intention to sell Katongo after a disappointing season for him with the Luanda-based club.

Katongo, who previously played at Jomo Cosmos and Mamelodi Sundowns, was signed for a second stint at the start of the season but club officials said they were disappointed with his contribution.

Petro finished third in the standings, 13 points behind champions Recreativo Libolo.

Sangala told reporters in Luanda on Sunday he was disappointed with the decision of Primeiro Agosto not to renew his contract but said he understood.

“Sports people have to be prepared for anything in their careers and this is no exception. When the season ended last month I was told that I would not be needed next season and I have had to accept his. The management at the club is new and they obviously have their reasons,” he told the sports daily Jornal dos Desportos.

Sangala had been on loan at Benfica Luanda this past season. He played in South Africa at Thanda Royal Zulu.
