Citizenship Holding Up Next Big Move

A request to have a player approved for citizenship is holding up what could be the next big move in the Premier Soccer League.

SuperSport United are understood to be open to releasing striker Evans Rusike, with AmaZulu and Maritzburg United his likely destination in the coming days.

The potential transfer could be a done deal ahead of Monday’s deadline, but the players’ agent has confirmed why there’s a delay and a stumbling block.

“Yes, there has been interest in Evans by a few clubs and the difficulty is that, although he is eligible for citizenship, the department (home affairs) is working on a very small staff or no staff at all sometimes due to Covid,” Mike Makaab of Prosport International explained, confirming that Rusike, a Zimbabwean, has applied for permanent residency.

This will allow the player to be registered by any of his potential suitors without needing to offload one of their foreign players to make room.

According to PSL rules, clubs are only allowed to have a maximum five players who are not South Africans on their books at any time.

“It’s been almost impossible to get it done effectively. But it is in the upper most part of our minds,” Makaab added.

Rusike joined SuperSport from Maritzburg three years ago following Jeremy Brockie’s big-money move to Mamelodi Sundowns. But he has been a fringe player under Kaitano Tembo over the last two seasons or so.
