Gent chase Mushekwi, Rusike released

JOHANNESBURG — Nyasha Mushekwi will definitely be leaving Mamelodi Sundowns, with Belgian Pro League club KAA Gent leading the list of clubs — which includes five South African Premier Soccer League teams — after his services, while Tafadzwa Rusike could also be headed to the same league after being released by Ajax Cape Town.

Kick Off

KickOff.com can reveal that talks are already going on between Sundowns and Gent over the services of Mushekwi.

On the domestic scene SuperSport United, Bidvest Wits, Moroka Swallows, Bloemfontein Celtic and another unnamed Gauteng club have already approached The Brazilians and are making frenetic efforts to lure him following revelations that Sundowns are willing to cash in on their big striker.

Of all the five local clubs that have been in touch with Sundowns, the 25-year-old is only interested in joining only one of them.

However, Mushekwi’s priority is Europe, with the Tshwane-based side also apparently preferring to sell him abroad instead of locally.

The sticky point at this stage is that Downs seem to still value Mushekwi from his first two seasons at the club when he scored 34 goals, rather than his current worth that is in line with the fact that he wasn’t a regular during the past season.

In the meantime, Mushekwi is sweating it out in the gym in anticipation of his move away from Chloorkop.

Mushekwi, who has spent three years at Sundowns since arriving from Caps United in Zimbabwe, recently extended his contract with Sundowns for another year.

Ajax Cape Town have confirmed the release of 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,” said 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.

  1. I admire Musheki, this boy has a rare talent, I have never seen in a footballer, look at the way he clinically , jumps high, bend backwards and execute brilliant headers. His headers are classic,out of this world. Also the boy can shoot or use his feet. He positioning, and able to read the game well. You guys you know am a Bosso, supporter, but I do support, my home boys, I do not congratulate and aknowledge their talents, wether, they come fro De mbare, or Caps or Tanganda , or any club from zim. I support soccer , not soccer politics, I hate lies and favouritism and regionalism, tribalism in soccer. You cannot bring a goodman down. Good luck Mushekwi, if people were not jealousy of you, you could be playing, in Bundesliga or Epl, that’s where you belong.

  2. We can always, shout at each other, call each other names, Ndebele, Shona, etc, but our inner concions , knows and tells us, we are all zimbabweans and all the same.And trully speaking, all human beings are the same. I always take it as a game, when people insult, each other. We support different team so as to enjoy a game, in my language, sithi abantu abayi nganxanye bengamanzi. If everybody supports Highlanders, Dynamos or Harare city, Soccer will be boring.
