Namibian striker Peter Shalulile says that the chance to play in African club competition was one of the key reasons he agreed to sign for Mamelodi Sundowns.
Fresh from a Premier Soccer League (PSL) season in which he hit 16 goals for Highlands Park to share the Golden Boot award with Orlando Pirates’ Frank Mhango, the 27-year-old will head to Chloorkop alongside teammate Mothobi Mvala.
“All I can say is I’m grateful to go there,” Shalulile told KickOff in regards to his pending transfer.
“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 added, “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.
“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.”
