Former Hearts of Oak forward Kwame Kizito has revealed the reason why he terminated his contract with Libyan side Al Ittihad.
According to the lanky forward, political unrest in Libya influenced his decision to terminate his contract with the Libyan giants.
There is an ongoing conflict among rival factions seeking control of the territory and oil of Libya leading to civil war since 2014.
The North African country has not been able to organize a well-structured league since 2011 following a revolution against the country’s former leader Muammar Gaddafi.
“I personally terminated my contract with Al Ittihad due to unrest in the country,” he told Fox FM.
”The atmosphere at various stadiums is most terrifying, fight here and there including players at times, playing away matches are very difficult due to security issues, it wasn’t safe for me and I decided to terminate my contract.”
Kizito who was a member of the Ghana squad which won the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations joined the Libyan side on a three-year deal in January 2018.
