Why R5m Will Be Overpaying For Rusike
Default

Orlando Pirates are said to be after the services of Maritzburg United's Evans Rusike, whose club has slapped a R5 million asking price on his head. Should Pirates be overspending on him? Let's take a look!

The Zimbabwean has been one of the most sought-after figures in the Absa Premiership for the past two winter transfer windows, and it seems Pirates could be edging closer to securing his signature.

It has been reported that United will not sell him for anything less than R5 million – a figure that is R1.3 million more than what he is valued at.

According to Transfermarkt, Evans' asking price should be R3.7 million, and any club who hopes to add him to their club roster will have to pay the premium on him.

Rusike ended the 2016/17 Absa Premiership with only four goals and two assists in 28 league appearances – an exceptionally low return for a striker, especially one who is valued at R5 million.

Ultimately, Dr Irvin Khoza and company will have to decide if Rusike is worth the marked up price and beating other clubs to his services. It will certainly be interesting to see what they decide to do.

Do you think Pirates should avoid overspending on Rusike, or should they pay the R5 million?

Abraw can do better than Rusike I think,Rusike has never scored more than 10 goals a season in the PSL.He is a good player but not a good striker at all,Pirates need to negotiate with Supersport United for the services of Tefu Mashamaite(solid CB and a leader) and Ronwen Williams.Pirates also need to keep Dove Wome because he is capable of scoring goals if used in a right formation.

Orlando Pirates need an engine overhaul. As for most empty space is the goalkeeping space. Zilch. None. Nothing. Back four; We need the likes of; Hlatshwayo J Tshabalala Mobara M Lebusa. As for the midfield, we need the likes of;A Jali,D Claasen, Schilo Motswari J Shongwe Ntshangse(Black Leopards) In front we need; Brokie Jayiya Memela Qalinge Lorch Ndoro etc We need a stable team, not imihlola yonke lena esinayo!
