Shalulile bids farewell to Madisha, talks on his form


Mamelodi Sundowns striker Peter Shalulile has reflected on his great start to his career at the club since joining less than six months ago.

The Namibian international has so proved that he is the best buy in the DStv Premiership this season with some world class performances for the Brazilians.

The 27-year-old has netted nine goals with four assists in his 18 matches for the club, in all competitions.

“I did (expect a great start at Sundowns) because I always work hard before every season,” Shalulile told FARPost.

“When I scored against Chiefs that’s where it all started and then I kind of believed it’s going to be a good start and the technical team kept on believing in me, my teammates kept pushing me and that made it more easier for me.

“The target now is to win the league and make sure the team finishes high and the personal target is where I left off last season when I scored goals and more goals,” he said.

The former Highlands Park player also explained the motivation behind his now famous goal celebration dance.

“Haha it is just a happy dance you know. We celebrate God, that’s what it’s all about. That’s what I do.”

Shalulile was speaking to FARPost during the club’s visit to the late Motjeka Madisha’s house at Ga-Madisha-Leolo Village on Thursday.

“It is not easy losing a player especially (because) we played together there at Highlands Park. It’s really sad but you know every time I always tell my friends (teammates) that it’s God’s will, at the end of the day you cannot stop it. But we will surely miss him and he definitely was a great player and we will always remember him as one of the great soldiers that we have ever had,” he added.
