Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder George Maluleka has addressed recent talk of a possible exit from the club.
Maluleka joined Sundowns after parting ways with Kaizer Chiefs a few months before the end of last season but has not been able to hold down a regular place in the side.
Since his arrival, the player has been linked with a loan move and he has been aware of this.
The 32-year-old midfielder made 14 appearances in all competitions for Sundowns, playing some part in the side's DStv Premiership success, but probably not as much as he would have liked.
“To be honest, I think it’s because of where I was, with me playing week in and out. Now I come here (to Sundowns), I play, I don’t play, I play, I don’t play. (But) I am very happy at Sundowns and I am in a very good space. George is happy, George is not going anywhere,” the former SuperSport United and Ajax Cape Town midfielder told media.
“I have heard about these moves. If it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen. I am a Sundowns player and I am not going anywhere. I think (the first) season was good. I feel I contributed where I could. A lot of people didn't give me a chance and I played. I did not play much, but I feel that I did well for my first season.”
Maluleka was delighted to bag a fourth league title in his career.
"It's always amazing. You can't explain it, because you get players who play football their whole careers and they end up retiring without even winning anything. For me to have already won four titles is a big thing. I am very happy."
