Former Busoga United striker Joel Madondo has mutually terminated his employment contract at Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca Sports Club.
The agreement to terminate the Uganda Cranes striker contract was agreed upon on Saturday July 11th 2020.
“Yes. It is true I have mutually terminated the contract with Wydad Casablanca Sports Club,” Joel Madondo was quoted by Kawowo Sports.
“I am humbled for the time spent at the club,” he added.
Things have been tough for the striker since he joined Wydad Casablanca in January this year.
Joel Madodo’s harsh life in Casablanca
Joel Madondo joined the Moroccan side in January 2020 after being released from Busoga United Football Club.
However, after five matches with the North Africans, it has been a hell of life for the Ugandan center forward.
He was neglected at his hotel residence without food, accumulated salary arrears and lately being denied access to training with the team as he could only train in isolation.
To make matters worse, he was confined to a rented apartment without pay or allowances of any kind from his employers since March.
Joel Madondo now a free agent
Madondo is officially a free agent and will be weighing options before deciding his next move.
Joel Madondo’s agent Tushar Ruparelia confirmed Madondo’s contract termination at Wydad.
“It is very true that my client has terminated the employment contract with Wydad Casablanca on mutual basis.”
“What is on ground now is about returning home and having a little rest before the next step will be decided” Tushar Ruparelia told Kawowo Sports.
However, Joel Madondo will wait to come back in the country with most airports on the African continent still closed.
The 22-year-old striker becomes the latest victim of Ugandan players who fail to deliver in North African clubs.
Others include Muhammed Shaban, who was at Raja Casabalanca, Daniel “Muzeyi” Sserunkuma who failed at Ittihad Tanger, Murushid Juuko among others.
