Rusike Explains SuperSport Switch
Evans Rusike says that SuperSport United’s domestic success and history for getting players into Europe was the reason why he decided to make the switch this week.
The 27-year-old completed his move to Matsatsantsa on Tuesday after a deal was struck with Maritzburg United for a reported fee of around R5 million, with a couple of players also believed to be part of the transfer.
Now, having had his first training session with Eric Tinkler’s side, Rusike has discussed his reasons for making the move to Tshwane, and his hopes for this season.
He said in a statement, “SuperSport United is a great club. They have achieved a lot in their short history, especially in the cups. They have also shown that they can get players to Europe and it remains my dream to play in Europe.
“I know I have to prove myself to the coach and management of SuperSport, and I will give my best to boost the team into the top eight this season.”
Meanwhile, the club’s CEO, Stan Matthews, added, "He has all the makings of a great striker with blistering pace, great skill and he can finish in the box. We are thrilled to announce his signing and look forward to him making a meaningful contribution for us over the next few years.”
The Siya crew have been informed that Rusike has been registered, and could even make his debut for SuperSport tonight against AmaZulu.
