Namibian international Peter Shalulile has expressed excitement over his move to South African Premier League champions Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Namibian signed a five year-deal with the club following an impressive season for his former club Highlands Park.

He became the second player from Namibia to secure a lucrative deal with a big South African football club this season after fellow national teammate Deon Hotto signed with Orlando Pirates.

Happy times

“I am happy to have secured a deal with this big club that has a rich history.

“I would like to thank the Almighty for making this move possible for me.

“Sundowns is a very big club that has a great philosophy of winning titles.

“I have also always wanted to play in the CAF Champions League and now I will have that opportunity at Sundowns,” Shalulile said.

Hopes for more goals

Shalulile, who finished joint-top goal scorer alongside Orlando Pirates' Gabadinho Mhango with 16 goals, hopes to bring more goals to his new club.

“All I have to do as a player now is to continue improving and working hard to make sure that I score more goals.

“I am a man who believes in God and that has helped me so much during my career,” Shalulile added.

Shalulile will also hope to fit in with the Sundowns style of play and provide more attacking options for the ‘Brazilians’.

Options for Pitso

It is not expected to be an easy way into the first eleven for the Namibian given that Sundowns have top players that will compete for attacking positions.

Pitso Mosimane will be required to choose between the likes of Mauricio Affonso, Jose Ali Meza, Sibusiso Vilakazi and his new arrival for regular starts during the 2020/21 season.

“Football on the pitch has always been competitive and I will not be bothered by who else is there as long as I bring my A game to the table.

“The good thing about having competition for a regular start also motivates you as a player to work harder in order to make sure that you are part of the coach plans,” Shalulile said.

Sundowns have also bolstered their squad with the arrival of Mothobi Mvala from Highlands Park.
