Nathaniel Asamoah clarifies Raja Casblanca contract termination, says he canceled the deal

Ghana striker Nathaniel Asamoah has moved to clarify issues regarding the termination of his contract at Moroccan giants Raja Casablanca.

The North African side released the 25-year-old, just five months after joining the side from Ghanaian side Medeama.

The former Kotoko striker has denied claims he failed to match up to the standard, insisting he terminated the contract after the club failed to meet its obligations.

“It’s not true that they (Raja) terminated my contract. I did because they failed to meet their obligation,” he told

“I pushed for my contract to be canceled and so what they said in their official statement is not accurate.

“There were things they were supposed to do for me, but they did not and so I did not see the need to continue.

“Let me also say that there is no contract which allows me to return to Medeama. So as you can see, they misled the public.”

The former Red Star Belgrade hitman was on track towards being crowned the top scorer of last season’s Ghana Premier League but his move to Raja – while in exhilarating form – saw him miss out.

The accolade was eventually won by Berekum Chelsea’s Kofi Owusu.

Asamoah will decide his long-term future when he arrives in Ghana in the coming days.
