I have the support of my teammates and the coaching staff ... Matthew Rusike

KAIZER Chiefs’ Zimbabwean striker Matthew Rusike has expressed confidence that he deserves to don the gold and black jersey of the Glamour Boys.

Rusike scored a brace as Chiefs beat Polokwane City on Wednesday at FNB Stadium to take the league title to Naturena and the forward, who has come in for some criticism, believes he can deliver when called upon.

“I don’t really take much notice [of the boos] and I focus on the job at hand. What is done is not within my world and it doesn’t affect me, really,” he said.

“As I said, the players that I play with and the coaches respect me. We respect each other and I’m happy, they are happy.

“I have the support of my teammates and the coaching staff… I believe in my ability and I believe in myself so I just need to continue working hard.”

Speaking of teammates, Chiefs’ hard man Willard Katsande believes Rusike is capable of offering the team more going forward.

“I always tell him that he must keep on working hard. It is just that the fans will look the other way of his game,” Katsande said.

“But overall, he helped us a lot in terms of defending. He always pays attention to the coach's instruction and he is really an important player for us.

“There is still a lot to come from him, he must continue working hard and not try to listen to negatives.

“Chiefs is a big team and everybody has his or her opinions.”

Rusike, whose contract apparently expires at the end of this season, has started seven matches for Chiefs this season in all competitions and found the back of the net three times.
