Liberian international striker William Jebor has announced that he will depart his Moroccan club, Wydad Casablanca, despite having two more years left on his current contract.
Via his official Facebook page, the goal puncher announced that he will be leaving during the summer transfer window. He thanked the fans of Wydad for their support over the years and decided not to disclose why he wants to leave. However, he said he would speak out if the club forced him to do so.
“I will be leaving because of so many factors and things that are happening from within the club which I don’t want to talk about in order to protect the integrity and image of the club,” he said. “I want all issues to be resolved and settled behind closed doors. It is in the hands of my agent and my lawyer.”
Jebor further thanked the fans for their support: “My respect to the legends and fans that have been supporting this great club. Rain or shine, in the cold or hot weather, you are there to support. Even though at times you become too harsh, but you do so out of the great love for your club. You want to see the best always and that’s wonderful.”
Jebor has had a difficult time at the Moroccan club since he returned during the 2018 summer transfer window.
He debuted as a loaned player to Wydad during the 2016-17 season when he won the Morocco Botola Pro League and the golden boots. He opted not to stay at the club and moved to Saudi Arabia where he struggled with Al Nassr. After just six months with Al Nassr, his contract was terminated on mutual agreement.
With so many clubs in North Africa after his signature, he made a return to Wydad where he found it difficult to cement his place on the first team. He’s managed to score three goals and provided one assist in 13 games played this season.
