Bringing a Cup to Polokwane would be an achievement – Maluleke


Since his move to Polokwane City from SuperSport United back in 2014, veteran midfielder Jabulani Maluleke is still searching for his first silverware with the club.

Maluleke tasted success at United where he was part of the team that won the League in the 2008/09 season as well as the 2009/10 season and the Nedbank Cup in 2011/12 season.

With over 180 games for ‘Rise and Shine’ in his 6-year stay, Maluleke says it would mean a lot for him to finally bring a trophy to the province as a team.

“Yeah it’s a good achievement to win accolades as a player but now is a new chapter I am at Polokwane City and it means a lot for me to be here,” Maluleke told the media.

“To bring a cup at this province will be a good achievement for us as a team and players. I just wish we can go forward and reach the final.”

City host Baroka in a Nedbank Cup last 32 clash at Peter Mokaba Stadium tonight (19:30).

“It’s a cup of upsets and going to the game against Baroka as a derby won’t be any easy game and we are not taking it lightly.

“Everything has been going well in camp so we really need to win this game on Tuesday to also gain momentum going into the League,” said Maluleke.

The last time City won a match against Baroka was back in March 2019 with a 3-1 scoreline.
