Mamelodi Sundowns’ new signing, George Maluleka is currently with the Brazilians in Rustenburg, where the team is underway with preparations for the return of the 2019/20 season.
The 31-year-old midfielder put pen to paper on a pre-contract with Sundowns back in March this year and officially joined the Chloorkop-based club on June 30, when his contract with Kaizer Chiefs came to an end.
However, Maluleka is not currently eligible to play for the Brazilians as he can only be registered once the transfer window officially opens, though, in the meantime he continues training with the team, adapting to his new way of life.
“The first day was good and great to be back on the field, a lot of physical training and I enjoyed myself. The guys have been good, I was received with a warm welcome, it was very good and I am happy,” Maluleka said, quoted from Sundowns’ official website.
“He is a good boy, a good player, intelligent, intrinsic also. We have already spoken about tactics and we have put him through the process of how our number six and eight plays,” Head Coach Mosimane went on to say.
“He comes with a lot of set-piece delivery skill, he can score, can shoot from outside the box and is willing to learn which is good and we wish him all the best,” he added.
