Jali Opens Up About His Transition From Europe Back To SA

Andile Jali is certainly back to his best, as he has since established himself as an integral part of the Mamelodi Sundowns set-up.

The 30-year-old returned to South Africa back in July 2018, where he was previously on the books of Belgium side, KV Oostende in the Jupiler Pro League.

Jali is having one of his best seasons on the books of the Brazilians, where his played a key role in Sundowns lifting the Telkom Knockout trophy and in their current challenge for both the Nedbank Cup and the 2019/20 Absa Premiership title.

“Having come back home from Europe I always knew it was not going to be easy, but Sundowns made the transition easier because I could feel that I did not come back to just any team but it felt like family, and I had all my brothers around me to assist me settle in,” Jali said on Sundowns’ official website.

“However with all the talent we have in the squad, making it in the starting line up was not going to be a walk in the park but my mind was set out for the task.”

“Another big task I knew I had was to represent my country. It really feels good to have seen a positive response to my goals I had coming back home.”

“But most of all the South African fans were one of the things I was looking forward to seeing again. Hearing them cheer and feeling their passion from the stands,” he added.
