Erasmus reveals Shalulile's secret

Premiership

Mamelodi Sundowns striker Kermit Erasmus has revealed the secret behind Peter Shalulile's success last season.

The Namibian forward scored 15 goals last season to help the Brazilians win the inaugural DStv Premiership title in his debut campaign with the club.

As a result, Shalulile won both the Footballer of the Season and the Players' Player of the Season awards at the Premier Soccer League awards ceremony last month.

Shalulile's accolades last season has not come as a surprise to Erasmus, who believes his teammate was also unlucky not to win the Golden Boot.

"He is a great humble guy, great person, works very hard, selfless and he deserves everything that has achieved," Erasmus told the media.

"You can see on the field, relentless when he is on the field ,the fighting spirit and he is always positive. He is a brother to me, we grew closer the past season as brothers.

"I help him where I can. He always wants to learn; he is always open for that and never criticise or say anything bad about other players. He is a good person.

"He deserves what has achieved this season. Congratulations to him. He worked hard and was close getting the top goal scorer award as well .If he scored in the first half, he could have challenged {Bradley} Grobler, unfortunately didn't happen. He knows I am fond of him. I have huge admiration for him as a person before him as a player."
