Ghanaian international Adam Kwarasey has mutually agreed to terminate his contract with Norwegian outfit Vålerenga.
The shot-stopper had a contract that runs out on 31st December 2020, but both parties have agreed to terminate the contract.
Sports manager, Jørgen Ingebrigtsen revealed that the decision to let the 32-year-old leave was to focus on the young goalkeepers at the club’s disposal.
“There is no drama behind this. We have chosen a strategy to focus on young local players, and have Kristoffer and Kjetil in the same position as Adam.”
“These are the ones we have chosen to focus on in the future, and then this is a natural decision,” said Jørgen Ingebrigtsen to the club official website.
Kwarasey, who recently recovered from a back injury expressed his excitement to have represented the club
“Of course, I wish I had the opportunity to achieve something here, but that’s football. Things do not always go smoothly. I am very happy and proud to have played with the Vålerenga logo on my chest even in adulthood,” Kwarasey said.
“Vålerenga and Valle will always be close to me after spending almost 15 years of my life here. But then it’s like with everything else: Things end once and for all. Now is the time to move on. I wish my teammates good luck and hope they can take Vålerenga back to the top of Norwegian football again”, he concluded.
The club went on to thank the 32-year-old shot-stopper for his time at the club and wished him good luck in his career.
Kwarasey joined Vålerenga from danish outfit Brøndby in 2017. He made 66 appearances in all competitions in his 3 years stay with Vålerenga.
