Rusike off to Belgium for trials


After failing trials at relegated English Premier League side Bolton Wanderers last year, Young Warriors and Jomo Cosmos striker Mathew Rusike has been given another chance to break into the lucrative European football leagues after Belgiums Genk requested the player for trials.

This was revealed by Cosmos owner Jomo Sono who doubles up as the clubs coach.

Speaking to NewsDay Sport soon after watching the Benjani Mwaruwaris testimonial match between Friends of Benjani and the Warriors of Zimbabwe at the National Sports Stadium on Saturday, the Black Prince of South African soccer said Rusike would be leaving soon.

He will not be with me next season. He is going to Genk for trials anytime soon.

He is a very talented young player and I have great faith he will pass there, said Sono.
The former South African coach said there were players in the Warriors team that played on Saturday who he would like to have a further look at.

Yes, there are two or three players I saw today (Saturday).

I will start talking to them tonight (Saturday night), but I wont give you their names, its my secret, said the man who is credited with having nurtured players like Mwaruwari and Kennedy Nagoli before helping them to European leagues.

I dont compete with teams like Sundowns to buy players because there is too much money there. My business model is to make them (players), then I sell, thats how Jomo Cosmos operate, said Sono.
