Mphahlele was given a one-year contract before the start of the 2021/22 campaign, the terms of which gave the player an option to extend his stay at the club for one more season.
The club said on Tuesday it would not be renewing Mphalele’s contract, which expires at the end of June. Rama, as Mphahlele is affectionally known, has worn Amakhosi’s captain’s armband a few times. He previously played for Mamelodi Sundowns.
