Rio Ave part ways with Ghanaian striker Yakubu Aziz

Portuguese club Rio Ave has parted ways with Ghanaian striker Yakubu Aziz and will not be part of their squad for the 2024/2025 season.

Yakubu joined Rio Ave in 2022 from Vitória Guimarães and made 17 appearances, scoring 7 goals.

Rio Ave announced the departure of Aziz on their social media page:

“His journey at the Vilacondense club began in 2021/22, and Aziz quickly won the hearts of Rio Ave fans.”

“Three years later – interrupted only by a half-season loan – the Ghanaian striker moves to Japan to represent Shimizu S-Pulse.”

“During his time with Rio Ave, Yakubu Aziz played 73 games and scored 30 goals, becoming a key player not only in the top division but also in subsequent seasons.”

“The Japanese club activated the termination clause, securing the athlete’s services.”

Rio Ave Futebol Clube thanked Aziz for his professionalism and dedication, wishing him the best for his future.

Yakubu was loaned to Estoril Praia in the 2020-21 campaign, helping the club secure promotion from the Portuguese second-tier to the top division with 12 goals in 28 matches.

The highly-rated youngster left Ghanaian side Charity Stars to join FC Vizela U19 in 2016, advancing to the first team a year later.

He signed for Vitória Guimarães in July 2019 for around €200,000 after a successful loan spell at the club’s B side, scoring 11 goals in 28 games in the Portuguese second-tier during the 2018-19 season.
