Trezeguet terminates contract with UAE's Baniyas

French World Cup-winner David Trezeguet has terminated his one-year contract with UAE club Baniyas due to a muscle injury that has kept him out of action most of the season.

The newspaper Sport360 said Sunday that the 34-year-old striker agreed to end his contract because he couldn't deliver on what had been expected from one of the league's biggest off-season signings.

The club's interim coach Salem Al Orfi praised Trezeguet's honesty, noting that he could have kept his mouth shut and continued to collect a paycheck. Trezeguet, who has played for Monaco, Juventus and Hercules in Spain, only featured in the club's opening league match and a Etisalat Cup match.
