Rusike finally completes Chiefs move!

[Posted 11 Sep 2012]

Rusike (right), a player full of tricks and skill, has finally joined his dream local team, Chiefs.
News reaching is that Zimbabwean speedy and skillful midfielder Matthew Rusike has completed his protracted move to Kaizer Chiefs.

Kaizer Chiefs' website has confirmed that Rusike has now been cleared to join South Africa's Glamour Boys.

"The dispute between Matthew Rusike and Jomo Cosmos  has been settled. Kaizer Chiefs can now confirm that Matthew is part of the team," reads a statement on the Chiefs website.

"...Amakhosi are now delighted that the player is now available to don the black and gold  jersey. He has been training with the rest of the team and should be ready when called by the Technical Team to do duty for the team."

Rusike has been handed jersey No.21, the same jersey donned by Knowledge Musona before he made his European move with Bundesliga side TSG Hoffeheim 1899, who have since loaned him to Augsburg for this season only.

The hold-up to the move was caused by an industrial dispute between the player and his former club Jomo Cosmos. The player understood that he was a free agent, while the club argued that it still had a two year option which it chose to exercise without notifying the player.

Cosmos refused to give the player a clearance to join Chiefs, despite the player having agreed a three year deal with Amakhosi and has since been training with the team.

The dispute ended up with the Premier Soccer League’s Dispute Resolution Committee (DRC). There were conflicting reports as to when the outcome would be released by the PSL's DRC. Some even suggested that the outcome was only expected in mid September.

Now, we hear that Rusike has received his clearance to join Chiefs, without finer details on the judgement of the DRC. One can only conclude that the ruling either went in Rusike's favour, or the parties decided to resolve the dispute amicably with the DRC's assistance.

If the player's move to Chiefs has been completed, it could mean that as a free agent, transfer window period rules are not applicable and Rusike could register anytime, and he has already been registered for this season.

The signing of Rusike brings the number of Zimbabwean players at Chiefs to five. He joins compatriots red-hot striker Kingston Nkatha, Willard Katsande, in-form defender Zhaimu "Jimmy" Jambo and Lincoln Zvasiya.
