Mido Finally Breaks His Silence After Chiefs Exit

George Maluleka has now finally ended his silence following confirmation that he is a Mamelodi Sundowns player after six years at Kaizer Chiefs

But the written note on his Instagram account is not the kind where the midfielder spills the beans or gives an insight into any of the drama regarding his contract saga.

‘Mido’ was confirmed by Amakhosi to have rejected a new two-year deal back in March, instead opting to agree terms with Sundowns.

His agent, Sean Roberts, told the Siya crew last week that the midfielder would have loved nothing but to finish the remainder of the Absa Premiership campaign with the Glamour Boys and help them end their five year title drought.

The club, however, decided against offering him a short term deal for the remaining eight matches, being irked by his move to Downs.  

“It’s a constant surprise of just how far a road we have travelled together. The continued love, commitment and support you’ve shown can never be forgotten. The road that I have travelled with Kaizer Chiefs could not have been done without your continued support,” the player said in a brief note addressed to chairman, Kaizer Motaung, the club’s staff and fans on his Instagram account.

“Thanks for always getting excited about the games we played as a team, despite it not always ending good. Your support expressed on social media and other platforms, also in real life and in real time, will always be appreciated.”

Maluleka will only make his Sundowns debut in the upcoming 2020/21 campaign because he cannot be registered by his new club until then.

“Endings are never easy but I celebrate it knowing that it precedes new beginnings. As I enter a new season I remember the powerful words of Martin Luther King JR: ‘Take the first step in faith, you don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step’. You will all continue to hold a special place in my heart, both now and for years to come. And as I take my first step into the new season, I look forward to the new challenges that lie ahead at Mamelodi Sundowns,” the 31-year-old wrote.
