Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs striker Matthew Rusike has asked the team to give him the chance to try his luck in Europe.

The Zimbabwean-born striker didn’t play all too many games at Chiefs last season despite former coach Stuart Baxter being a fan of his.

The club’s Football Manager, Bobby Motaung, said that at the moment they don’t have the name of the team but they know that Rusike asked to be given a chance to go to Portugal.

Motaung told Sport24 that at the moment there is nothing much they can say because the player communicated to them via email.

"What I can tell you right now is that Matthew Rusike asked us to give him a go ahead and try his luck in Portugal," said Motaung.

"He didn’t say the team and he didn’t say for how long. But what we know is that he wants to give it a try in Europe.”
