Kingz release Goutzioulis

George Goutzioulis has quit Kingz two games before the end of the season, after being released early for personal reasons.

The 24-year-old midfielder met with Kingz chief executive Chris Turner on Monday and asked for the release, bringing to an end a season in which he was twice sent off and also dropped by former coach Mike Petersen for "disciplinary reasons" in round three.

Goutzioulis joined the Kingz from South Melbourne along with Petersen, but his future at the club came under scrutiny at the weekend when he missed a team curfew on the trip to Newcastle.
Following the meeting with Turner it was agreed Goutzioulis could return to Melbourne, and the CEO refused to reveal the contractual details of the agreement.
