We also offloaded Thabani Goredema who asked to finish his contract at a club where he will be able to get regular game time. Brian Jurua��s contract with us was terminated. This is all in a bid to freshen up our squad. There is a need to accommodate more youngsters in our team,a�? said Chicken Inn spokesperson Tavengwa Hara.
