Peter Shalulile: Why I'm joining Mamelodi Sundowns transfer news

accreditation

Lions of the North co-director Brad Kaftel confirmed to this website on Sunday that Shalulile and Mothobi Mvala are heading to Mamelodi Sundowns.

"All I can say is I'm grateful to go there," Shalulile tells snl24.com/kickoff about his imminent arrival at Chloorkop.

"I'm very happy that I'm going there you know, to add more value, and to learn. I've always wanted to play at Sundowns, wanted to play CAF in Africa.

"So they gave me the platform to play in Africa and I'm grateful for that. They've been communicating with my manager."

The Namibian marksman finished the 2019/20 season as joint-top goalscorer alongside Orlando Pirates ace Gabadinho Mhango after netting 16 goals.

"Ja, you have to be grateful for what you get in life sometimes. It's all about the belief you know, the belief you have in yourself and your ability," he says.

"If you've got that you will definitely do it you know. It's the encouragement from the coaches when they say as a striker you always have to be in the box if you want to score goals.

"And that's definitely what I did, we stayed in the box, waited for the right opportunity and when the opportunity comes you take it from there."
