The 23-year-old striker was unhappy with the reduced usage. He played just 415 minutes, divided into nine matches, scoring a goal.

One of the main problems that Gelson Dala faced at Antalyas (currently ranked 16th in the championship of that country) is the lack of opportunities to play in his original position.

After a great season at Rio Ave, where he alternated between second striker and left-winger, the Angolan international was insistently used as a reference 9 by coach Bulent Korkmaz and, later, by Stepjan Tomas, who replaced the first in the middle of November month.

Thus, his performance was far from expected and was limited to a goal scored in the tie (2-2) with Eyupspor, of the III Division, in the second leg of the fifth round of the Turkish Cup.

Sporting's SAD will now find a new solution for the athlete, who should undergo a new loan.
