Sierra Leone Cyprus based striker Mustapha Haji Bangura has said he was the one that terminated his contract contrary to what was posted in the club’s website which reads: “The Company Apollon Football (Public) Ltd. announces that today June 6th 2012, has terminated the contract of Mustapha Bangura with Apollonas. We would like to thank Mustapha for his contribution to Apollonas and wish him all the best for the future.”
The player who is currently in United State of America on holiday said he decided to terminate his contract after the club failed to pay his four month wages.
“I was the very one who decided to terminate my contract with them, they owe me four months’ salary and another reason was that I am having problems with the new president,” Bangura said.
However, the 22-year old striker confirmed he has already secured a new contract with another team but failed to name the club and country.
He said: “I have already secured a new contract which is better than the one I was having with Apollon but in 10 days time I will revealed my new club.”
Bangura who joined the Cypriot club in 2009/2010 season made twenty league appearances for Apollon last season and scored six goals and overall he made 72 league appearances scoring 24 goals.
He also helped them win the 2009/2010 Cypriot Cup, scoring the opening goal of the final.
The former Old Edwardians striker started his professional career in Cyprus since 2006 where he played for Nea Salamina, AC Omonoia, AEP Paphos before joining Apollon Limassol first on loan in 2009.
