Ajax Cape Town Signs Zimbabwe's Tafadzwa Rusike

The Caps United winger impressed the Cape Town based side after a week trial period and immediately signed him on a three-year deal.

 “We are happy to have secured the signature of Tafadzwa. He is an exciting player in the same mould as Franklin Cale,” George Comitis
the Ajax CEO announced on the club’s website on Wednesday evening.  He is the second U20 player whom we have signed because we are building our team for the future. All indications are that Tafadzwa will be an asset to Ajax Cape Town and we very happy to welcome him to Ikamva.”

Rusike will join another Zimbabwe youth international Archieford Gutu who has been on the club’s books since last year but has not been able to feature in the first team because he was not registered to play in the just ended league campaign.

The exciting left winger tried his lucky at Inkamva last year but failed to make the grade after he failed to impress the coaches at the
club who include former Zimbabwe international Wilfred Mugeyi.

His recent performaces for Caps United and the Zimbabwe national team could have forced the Ajax Cape Town bosses to have a change of heart and offer him a contract.

Rusike started his football career with Alaska Lions at Amateur level and soon caught the attention of Caps United’s scouts. He said he was delighted to sign for Ajax Cape Town.

“I am happy to sign for Ajax Cape town because they are a club who like to work with young players and they play exciting football,”
Rusike said after he was unveiled as an Ajax Cape Town player.
