Ajax, Rusike in contract talks



Ajax Cape Town are discussing a new three year contract with Zimbabwe international Paul Rusike, the club’s chief executive officer George Comitis confirmed on Monday.

This is despite Rusike having been named as a possible recipient of a future ban in Zimbabwe’s Asiagate scandal,

The 23-year-old has been at Ajax for the last three seasons, having signed as a teenager from Harare club CAPS United. He has been a consistent squad player although not always an automatic first choice.

Ajax allowed Rusike to go on trial to Belgium before the start of the season but when they did not receive an offer for him decided to keep him.

Comitis said negotiations on a new contract could be concluded in the next weeks.

Rusike, however, faces a possible two year ban from the game for his alleged part in the match fixing scandal that has engulfed football in his native Zimbabwe.

According to Harare media reports Rusike is on a list of players to shortly be given bans for their part in the scandal. This has however not yet been officially announced by the Zimbabwe Football Association.

There is a chance Fifa could then extend the bans to include his career in the Premier Soccer League.
