MARITZBURG WISH RUSHINE WELL IN THE NEXT CHAPTER OF HIS CAREER
29 January 2021
Maritzburg United have bid an emotional farewell to one of its most popular faces, Rushine De Reuck.
After three-and-a-half seasons of outstanding service, the 25-year-old central defender has joined up with Mamelodi Sundowns.
The Cape Town-born centre-half was signed by the Team of Choice ahead of the 2017/18 season and arrived at the club as an unknown entity in terms of experience in the Premier Soccer League (PSL).
He played 11 league matches in his first season for United as he found his feet in the PSL. He also featured in all five of Maritzburg's Nedbank Cup games as they went all the way to the final.
De Reuck then really kicked on in the 2018/19 campaign, featuring in 25 league games and six cup matches for the KwaZulu-Natal Capital City club.
Last season he did not miss a single game for the Team of Choice and continued to build his reputation and hone his skills, with the result that he received a call up to the Bafana Bafana squad.
"It's been a pleasure to witness Rushine's growth as a player and as a young man since he arrived at our club four years ago," Maritzburg United Chairman Farook Kadodia commented.
"He has flourished into a top class central defender and it's credit to Rushine that he has made the most of his opportunity and also to our coaches for helping him on his path.
"Such has been the quality and consistency of his performances that it was not a surprise when Sundowns came enquiring about him.
"As much as it will sadden us to see him leave, we are happy for Rushine to embark on a new chapter in his career and we thank him for his efforts with Maritzburg and wish him all the best for his career at club and international level."
