With a number of high-profile signings like Bongani Zungu, Ronwen Williams and Terrence Mashego at Mamelodi Sundowns this season, we take a look at who tops the list of the most valuable player at the Brazilians. 

Red-hot striker Peter Shalulile continues to lead the way in Mamelodi Sundowns' top 10 most valuable players, despite a hoard of players joining the Brazilians this season.

The 2022/23 season is the third since the Brazilians completed the signing of Shalulile in September 2020, where he was last on the books of Highlands Park.

There were concerns about whether the striker was worth all the fuss considering he was a relative novice in the DStv Premiership with his former coach Owen Da Gama at the time stating that Shalulile was worth R30 million!

With 58 goals and 17 assists in just 94 appearances for the Chloorkop outfit, Shalulile has proven to be worth all the fuss, and then some.
