With the Siya crew having reported that Mamelodi Sundowns will be allowing several of their fringe players to leave the club, one of their strikers has now confirmed he will begin life away from Chloorkop.
This week, forward Cuthbert Malajila told the Sunday Mail in his native Zimbabwe that he would be starting a fresh chapter when his contract expires at the end of the month having won “every domestic cup available in South Africa”.
Malajila joined Sundowns from Maritzburg United in 2013 and immediately helped them win their first Absa Premiership title under coach Pitso Mosimane.
But he soon fell out of favour. However, the forward still went on to clinch yet another championship – this time with Bidvest Wits in 2017, while on loan.
“After six years with Mamelodi Sundowns it is time to seek a new challenge elsewhere since I have achieved everything I could wish for,” he told the newspaper.
“I won every domestic cup available in South Africa from the Absa Premiership, the Nedbank Cup, Telkom Knockout and the biggest of them all the CAF Champions League, so I am happy I left my mark there.”
He added that the 2018/19 campaign was his last with the Brazilians, but he was not finished just yet.
“My manager is working on finding me a new home, when we get the best deal possible we will sit down and talk,” said the 33-year-old, who only made one appearances for Sundowns in what was eventually his final season.
