Peter Shalulile: Records are meant to be broken


Sundowns took a step closer to clinching their fifth straight league title after drubbing Arrows 6-0, with Shalulile's hat-trick added on by goals from Gaston Sirino, Kermit Erasmus and Pavol Safranko.

Shalulile broke a ten-year record that was held by Siyabonga Nomvethe of scoring at least 20 goals in the league, after taking his tally to 21 goals.

"I'd like to give glory to God first, my teammates most importantly, the technical team, it was not an easy game you know," Shalulile told SuperSport TV.

"Arrows is not an easy team to beat and we gave it an 'A game' and we got the six goals.

"To be honest my excitement was more on if Zwane scores, he's my Man of the Match, he gave an assist, he was on his 'A game'.

"To watch how my teammates play, it was really something great to watch, the love, the brotherhood inside here is one thing I love a lot."

Shalulile is now chasing a record held by Collins Mbesuma of 25 league goals since the 2004/05 campaign.

"I always tell the people I always want the team to win first, do good first and the rest will follow, hard work will not go wrong that's why I keep on scoring goals. To our fans we really thank you for coming," he went on.

"Ja to be honest records are meant to be broken, they are set by people, we're all here to break them, it's possible this year to get what I wanna do; to score more goals and win more cups for the team," he added.
