Masud confirms Al Nasr departure due to political turmoil in Libya

Just four months after penning an 18-month contract with current Libyan champions Al Nasr, Harambee Stars striker Masud Juma has announced through social media, that he and the club have decided to a parting of ways due to the high insecurity concerns in the North African country brought about by political instability.

Libya has descended into chaos since the ousting of long serving leader Muamar Gaddafi back in 2011 and since 2014 has been ruled by two feuding administrations as well as dozens of regional militia groups.

Former Kariobangi Sharks forward Masud joined Al Nasr which is based in Benghazi, Libya’s second most populous city, in February of this year after his season long deal with UAE side Dibba Al Fujairah elapsed at the end of 2018.

Since leaving the local scene after bagging the 2017 golden boot award, Masud has featured for three clubs.

He shook the local football scene when in 2018, he terminated his contract with South African topflight side Cape Town City after just eight months with the PSL side.

He is currently in the country training with the national team of which he was named in the provisional 30-man squad for this year’s AFCON finals.
