Duties with the Philippine national men’s football team forced Azkals striker Angel Guirado out of his club in India, according to a report by The Times of India Friday.
“Nobody really was happy with Angel’s performance. He had failed to deliver and he was being away from the team (on national duty) for far too long,” a Salgaocar FC official told The Times of India.
Guirado, who signed with Salgaocar last August, scored two goals in five appearances with the club.
The Filipino-Spanish striker was initially doubtful for the Suzuki Cup, but he later secured clearance to play for the tournament, where they fell to eventual champion Singapore in the semifinals.
Before bringing his talents to India, Guirado helped United Football League side Global capture the League title last season.
Guirado, through his Twitter account, said that he is now looking for a new squad where he can play after his release from Salgaocar.
