Highlanders Coach Explains Joel Ngodzo Release

Highlanders coach Baltemar Brito said midfielder Joel “Josta” Ngodzo was released by the club because he was underperforming.

The 70-year-old Brazilian said he does not care about Ngodzo’s stature in the local premiership. He said:

Joel no longer belongs to our club. We wish him all the luck in the next project of his career. He was a professional player.

We just decided to release him because we don’t mind the status of a player, but we are only worried about performance and we felt that he could not fit what was required for the position that he played.

We know that he is big but we don’t care about that status, we care about performance.

Maybe he can go to any other club and do well because he is not a bad player. It was only a technical decision.

We looked at him and we said: ‘He doesn’t have the pace and the background that we need for that position’ and we said he had better go to another club for the betterment of his career.

Highlanders announced on Wednesday that they had parted ways with Ngodzo by mutual consent.

Josta has been linked with a return to CAPS United where he was crowned Soccer Star of the Year in 2019.
