Shalulile aiming for improved returns


Mamelodi Sundowns gunman Peter Shalulile has pointed out what he has laid down as his mission for the season following a bright start to the new season that has left him leading the pack on the scoring charts.

Shalulile has banged in seven goals in nine games across all competitions pushing his total since arriving at Sundowns at the beginning of last season up to 29 from 48 appearances.

On Wednesday, he was justifiable handed the Player of the Month award for August/September and immediately indicated what he is working towards this term.

"My target is to end on a high with the team in every competition that we have to play, do good and hope score more goals than I did last year," says Shalulile.

To improve on his numbers from last season the Namibian has to score more than the 22 he managed in all competitions throughout the campaign.

And, at the rate at which he has been going, there is every reason to believe the 27-year-old will come good with his plan to score goals than he did last term.

"Nothing has changed this season because I’m still the same Peter in giving my 150% at training, doing my extras, listening more to the coaches and continuing to do what I did last year. The mood in the camp is exciting. We are working together, and it is a brotherhood thing.

"As for the league and the Champions League, for us, it is just to take one game at a time. We just want to do good in every match that we play. It is a personal thing to believe that it is possible for anything to happen this season," he notes while throwing his voice into The Brave Warriors failed World Cup qualifiers campaign after back-to-back defeats to Senegal.

"Going into that game with the form that I had it is just the same as what happened ahead of the national team camp. I went into camp with the form, but I played against the best and was also motivated playing against top players in the FIFA break.

"Going forward you come back having gained experience from playing players in Europe and that experience you can carry over to the Champions League."
