Cape Town City has confirmed that their striker Matthew Rusike has signed for Norwegian Premier League side Stabaek.
Firstly, one can read Rusike lead the Tweets, as he thanks City for their role in his career. Rusike wasn't the preferred choice for the Cape Town club upfront, so his move to Europe has resulted in many fans scratching their heads.
There's a few funny Tweets on the matter, and also many fans wishing the Zimbabwe player the best in Norway.
Thanks to @CapeTownCityFC for the experience over the last 2 seasons. To be involved in such a great project was an honour and will cherish the times shared with amazing people. For now my journey takes me elsewhere. Nothing but love 💙— Matthew Rusike (@Mattyrusike) March 11, 2019

Matthew Rusike leaves CT City to join Norwegian club Stabaek. Rusike, who joined City last year following spells in Tunisia and Sweden, had struggled for game time with the Citizens this season, as coach Benni preferred Mthembu upfront. #allthebest pic.twitter.com/OU5uiziVrY

With Matthew Rusike leaving @CapeTownCityFC to pursue a "career" in Europe, as well as the case of Tatenda Mukuruva who failed to make his mark at the same club arises a certain question,— Happymore T'challa Chayira🇿🇼 (@haploz99) March 11, 2019
Are there certain clubs which Zimbabwean players thrive at better than others ?
