Rushesha who plays as a full back for the English club once won the same award during the 2019/2020 season.

This is the same season he made his first team debut for the Swansea City senior team.

The talented defender was born in Zimbabwe before he moved to the United Kingdom as in infant back in 2003.

He is still yet to decide on which country to represent between Zimbabwe and Wales as he is eligible to play for both.

Nonetheless, Rushesha has once turned out for the youth football with the Wales national team.

In October 2019, the left footed utility player was part of the Welsh Under-19 squad that played Austria in an international friendly match.

Albeit, the teenage sensation has once opened up on his desire to play for the Zimbabwe senior national team. Nehanda Radio
