Tunisian Club Escape FIFA Ban, Agree to Pay Off Zimbabwe Striker

Embattled Tunisian premier league side Club Africain have escaped from a FIFA ban upon agreeing to pay off former player Matthew Rusike, Ducor Sports understands.

The Zimbabwean sued the North Africans demanding to be paid his €300,000 wages during his time there.

The 29-year-old parted ways with the erstwhile African club champions October 2017 over unpaid wages after he joined them on a free transfer from Swedish outfit Helsingborg.

Rusike turned his back on Africain going AWOL and later switching his career to South Africa Absa Premier Soccer team Cape Town City where he spent time prior to moving again.

Currently at Norwegian top tier side Stabaek, Matthew created a flexible payment plan for Club Africain to save the club after it turned out they could not cough up the money on time with a Fifa ban then looming.

However, an agreement has been reached to bury the matter.

Rusike has played only thrice for Stabaek this term as he faces a nine-month lay-off via a twist in the knee.
