Urban Warriors release Rusike

Ajax Cape Town release Zimbabwe midfielder Paul Rusike

Posted: 6 June 2013 Time: 09:03 pm

Ajax Cape Town have confirmed the release of Tafadzwa Rusike after deciding against taking up the option of a further year on his contract.

Rusike is now linked with a possible move to Belgian Pro League club Oud-Heverlee Leuven, who already have another Zimbabwean in Ovidy Karuru in their books.

Ajax CEO George Comitis confirms the departure of the stocky midfielder, who is currently in camp with the Zimbabwe senior national team ahead of World Cup qualifiers against Egypt and Guinea.

“He is now free because we didn’t renew his contract. We decided against taking up the option on his contract in May and he is now free to move on to the team of his choice,” says Comitis.

The 24-year-old has been with the Urban Warriors for the past three years after joining at the same time with his homeboy Khama Billiat.

Rusike joins veteran Dutch goalkeeper Sander Westerveld and Brazilian teenager Wanderson Costa Viana in the list of those that the club has released.

Jimmy Tau was Not in the Coach's Plain for Next Season Sometimes in Football you Lose the Best Players and Left with Cows Who Uses Muti Everyday to be Liked by the Coach. and I Think Mandla Masango Must Go Love & Peace.

I'm still wondering why is Motaung JR and Masango still @ Kaizer Chiefs Football Club and the soul provider Abia Nale being put on the transfer list?
This doesn't make sense.

This boy was better than Billiat & Serero when he came to Ajax,injuries impaired his form.I won't mind having him at the Khosi mansion,he can rediscover his form.

I do not think this guy is zebra material like one who says he is a good winger that may fit well in the zoo. As for Roger De sa, I think he just want to do what Mushin did to zebras before he was fired, with the name rebuild, how do you rebuild an oiled machine,RDS must just go and look for work somewhere.
