Horoya AC terminate Ghanaian defender contract

2018/2019 Ligue 1 Pro champions, Horoya AC, have terminated the contract of Ghanaian defender, Hudu Yakubu, after spending two years at the Stade du 28 Septembre.

The former AshantiGold SC, Medeama SC and Heart of Lions left-back joined the most successful club in Guinea from AS Togo on 22nd October 2018 after an impressive CAF Champions League campaign which saw him make 13 appearances, scoring once and assisting once.



In a statement on the Horoya AC website explained their decision to let the Ghanaian defender go “After the departure of [Tafadzwa] Kutinyu, it is the contract of Ghanaian left-back Yakubu Hudu (9MJ and 1but) that has just been terminated this week.”

“Yakubu Hudu rarely showed all his talent, playing too few matches allowing him to stay “in the small papers” of successive coaches.”

“Thus in a consensus with the club, Hudu agrees not to renew his contract which was drawing to a close. On behalf of the club as a whole, President Soufiane Souare wished him well in the rest of his career.” The statement read

24-year-old Yakubu made only 9 appearances in all competitions for Horoya AC in the abandoned 2019/2020 season scoring a single goal.
