ZIMBABWE international striker Mathew Rusike, who has joined Norwegian topflight team Stabaek, said he will use the opportunity to push for a comeback in the Warriors set-up.
Rusike joined Stabaek from Cape Town City yesterday, a development he described as a new chapter in his career.
The nomadic player last tuned up for Warriors under Kalisto Pasuwa and was part of the team that travelled to Gabon for the 2017 Afcon finals.
He now believes the new development will come with better fortunes.
“New chapter has taken me back to Europe to Norwegian Top flight team Stabaek and look to have a good year and push my way back into the national team such an amazing opportunity,” said Rusike.
Stabaek also posted about the news on their Twitter handle.
“Re-signing: Matthew Rusike was presented at Nadderud this afternoon-in the middle of Ringerunden players took to new, potential season pass customers. Three weeks to series start, you guys.”
Cape Town City wished Rusike well at his new club.
“Cape Town City striker, Matthew Rusike joins Norwegian Premier League side Stabaek. The club thanks Matty for his contribution over the last two seasons and wishes him well for the next stage of his career.”
Rusike joined City last year after some spells in Tunisia and Sweden and went on to struggle for game time, only managing 13 appearances.
He has also played for Kaizer Chiefs and Jomo Cosmos in South Africa before.
