Anthony Akumu: Kaizer Chiefs and Kenya international midfielder part ways
In his two seasons with the team, the midfielder has failed to maintain consistency since joining the Naturena-based squad. Anthony Akumu Agay, a midfielder for Kenya, has officially left Kaizer Chiefs after just two seasons.
The tall 29-year-old former Gor Mahia player has experienced difficulty getting playing time at the club. He played for Amakhosi in just nine Premier Soccer League games last year, and most of the time he was ignored.
The Soweto heavyweights had stated they were be open to selling him, but as the club announced, the two have decided to split ways.
Amakhosi stated on their official website that Kaizer Chiefs and Anthony Akumu Agay had mutually decided to end his contract early after first placing him on the transfer list.
The agreement was scheduled to end in June 2023. The midfielder, who was born in Kenya but moved to Zambia to play for Zesco United, scored twice in his 47 appearances for Amakhosi across all competitions.
We send Teddy our warmest wishes for the future.
The midfielder for the Harambee Stars is a priority transfer target for Tanzanian powerhouse Simba SC, according to GOAL.
While Akumu, who occasionally played as a center-back for the Glamour Boys, enjoyed success with Zesco United in the Zambian Premier League from 2016 to 2020, he struggled to find a home at Naturena.
