R16M Shalulile Justifying His Downs Price Tag

Peter Shalulile was impressive for Highlands Park, but after being signed for a handsome sum by Mamelodi Sundowns, the Namibian is showing that he was worth every penny.

There were always fears that Shalulile would struggle to emulate his goalscoring feats at Sundowns, where many before him have struggled to adapt to the rigors of playing for the Brazilians.  

However, after 11 goals and 5 assists in 21 matches for the Chloorkop giants, the 27-year-old is showing that he is well worth his R16 million price tag Sundowns forked out to bring him and Mothobi Mvala on board at the start of the 2020/21 season, as first reported by the Siya crew.

A closer look at Shalulile’s numbers shows that he is contributing towards a Downs goal every 1,31 matches, if he is not scoring himself, he is setting up one of his teammates, the latest of which came in Sundowns’ 5-1 drubbing of C.R Belouizdad in the CAF Champions League on Sunday.

Stats also show that Shalulile is well on his way to surpassing his tally of 19 goals in all competitions last season. At the same point last season, he had mustered nine strikes and currently already has 11 strikes to his name.

Shalulile is currently lagging behind Bradley Grobler (13) in the league’s Golden Boot race, but is likely that he will catch up to the ‘Sniper’ on the charts.
