DURBAN – Supersport United have turned down an offer from Kaizer Chiefs for the services of their talisman Evans Rusike.
The Zimbabwean has been on Amakhosi’s radar for a while now and with Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp having previously worked with the forward at Maritzburg United, the attempt to lure Rusike to Naturena was not surprising.
But SuperSport believe the 29-year-old still has a big role to play in the club’s efforts to get back to winning trophies.
“Yes, Chiefs wanted Rusike, but we turned them down. We are not looking to sell any of our forwards. We are looking to buy strikers,” SuperSport chief executive Stan Matthews said.
Amakhosi have beefed up their squad with the acquisition of Samir Nurkovic, John Koeti, Lazarus Nkambole and Byron Baccus.
