Ex-PSL star takes audacious path to revive career at Yadah FC alongside Billiat

A former PSL striker has taken an audacious path to revive his career by joining Khama Billiat at Yadah FC in Zimbabwe’s top-flight.

The former PSL striker has chosen to follow in Khama Billiat’s footsteps after failing to secure a club in South Africa.

Billiat, now aged 33, hogged the limelight in March after a sensational move to join Yadah FC, one of Zimbabwe’s most underperforming PSL teams.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns star had been unattached since ignoring a contract renewal offer Kaizer Chiefs. Despite being on the sidelines for a lengthy period of time, he instantly became the highest-paid player in the league.

His move appears to have influenced several unattached players to consider returning home [Zimbabwe]. And gangly striker Evans Rusike is set to be the latest player to follow suit.

Rusike has been training with the Miracle Boys as Yadah are fondly known. The 33-year-old is expected to be their latest signing as a free agent.

Rusike was last in the books of Moroka Swallows but he did not last the distance at the Dube birds. He also played for Maritzburg United, where he made a name before switching to Matsatsantsa.

In all PSL competitions, Rusike made 177 appearances where he scored 30 goals while providing 20 assists.

Yadah FC are are hoping to turn around their fortunes by luring former PSL stars.

In addition, former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Ovidy Karuru has also been linked with the club owned by Prophet Walter Magaya.

On the otherhand, ex-Orlando Pirates star Kuda Mahachi is yet to feature for Manica Diamonds amid match fitness concerns. Former AmaZulu midfielder Butholezwe Ncube has settled well at Sheasham in Zimbabwe’s first division.
