Ghanaian left back Richard Kissi Boateng says he called for a mutual termination of his contract at TP Mazembe because of lack of playing time.
The CAF Confederation Cup champions announced that they have terminated the contract of the former Berekum Chelsea defender based on mutual consent.
Minutes after the contract termination, the hardworking left back has disclosed to Ghanasoccernet.com that he called for the contract to be terminated because he needed to keep playing to keep his form.
"I have been here since 2013 and have worked under so many coaches. Any coach that comes gives me the opportunity to play. But this coach has been keeping me on the sidelines," Kissi Boateng told Ghanasoccernet.com
"The new coach has decided to keep me in the dug out and I think if I should go out of the club to get a new club where I'll be given enough playing time, it'll help me."
"So the team agreed to terminate my contract when I proposed it to them. It's not about non-performance or anything. I decided to end it with the club and they agreed," he added.
TP Mazembe new coach Velud joined the club after the exit of Patrice Carteron and Kissi Boateng has not been comfortable under his technical direction.
The left back joined TP Mazembe from Ghana Premier League side Berekum Chelsea in 2013 after the side's fantastic campaign in the group stage of the 2012 CAF Champions League.
TP Mazembe are till with Ghanaian quartet of Solomon Asante, Yaw Frimpong, Daniel Nii Adjei and Gladson Awake.
