Zothwane: Why Shalulile is PSL's best


Former Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Papi Zothwane has outlined three things Peter Shalulile is doing better than Jeremy Brockie before him that make him the best striker in the PSL.

Despite a very successful stint at SuperSport United, the New Zealand international struggled to fit in at Sundowns and scored only one goal in 26 appearances.

He ended up being loaned out to Maritzburg United where he also failed to discover his form and scored only one goal in 15 matches.

In his 18 appearances in all competitions for star-studded Sundowns, Shalulile has netted nine times already and provided four assists.

"Three things my brother," Zothwane tells KickOff.com in analysing why Shalulile is succeeding where Brovkie did not.

"The guy is very mobile. It's difficult in the modern game to deal with a striker like Shalulile who is mobile. He is a hard worker, and is a team player.

"He can create chances for his teammates. As much as he works hard, he wants to score. He did well for Highlands Park, but he's a team player, he's a hard worker and he's very mobile.

"In all the strikers that we have in Mzansi, I think he's the number one for me. He's a mobile striker, it's a modern game. In PSL he's the most [mobile].

"I don't think there's a defender that wants to face Shalulile because he will take you to the right, to the left... yoh! He is a workaholic that guy."
