Kelechi John departs the Central Coast for Portugal

Central Coast Mariners can confirm the transfer of defender Kelechi John to Belenenses SAD in the 2nd tier of Portuguese football. 

After an injury in pre-season and the emergence of Brian Kaltak and Nectar Triantis, the defender struggled to make the starting 11.

Kelechi’s new club is due to play in the Portuguese Cup quarter finals in under two weeks time. 

Everyone at the Central Coast Mariners wishes Kelechi well and we thank him for his time at the club.
