Kaftel: Shalulile deserves to play abroad


Highlands Park boss Brad Kaftel says he will not stand in the way of Peter Shalulile moving abroad if the right offer comes in.

Shalulile has been in fine form this season, netting 12 Absa Premiership goals as the Lions of the North sit in the top eight with six games to go.

The Namibian international has been rated amongst the most expensive local players in terms of market value by Highlands co-director Larry Brockstone, who placed a R30-million price tag on the forward's head.

Kaftel says even though his club holds Shalulile in the highest regard, they won't stand in his way if the player gets a good offer, locally or overseas.

"We haven't had interest that we can look at, but if there is the right offer and it's good, we have to consider it," Kaftel tells KickOff.com.

"I think the best thing for Peter is to send him overseas and get an international club. Peter is very special to us and has been with us for years now. He is top goalscorer, amazing guy and an amazing player.

"Right now we have to finish the season, that's our priority. We have six games to go. Once we finish the season, we will assess the options and we will see.

"For any of our players, if other clubs come after one of our players and if it is the right thing, we must look at it. We must consider them as well. Peter is like an adopted son. He is an amazing guy, we love him, he works hard. He is keen to improve and he gives 100 percent effort on the field."
