Ex-Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou leaving Botafogo

Salomon Kalou is leaving Botafogo.

The former Chelsea striker will leave the Brazilian giants - as it was announced today.

The Ivorian striker, 35, has terminated his contract.

The player moved to Brazil last July and made 25 appearances, including only 11 as a starter, scoring one goal in a season marred by relegation to Serie B.

Kalou was part of Chelsea's famous Champions League winning campaign in 2012.
