R30m Star: Even Mahlambi Wouldn’t Be Worth That Much

The R30 million price tag for Peter Shalulile has been evaluated by local football agent Siya Mareke. 

It’s been reported that Highlands Park have priced Shalulile at R30 million after the player emerged as one of the sought-after players in Mzansi.

The 26-year-old Namibian forward had been in rich rein of form, having scored 12 so far in the Absa Premiership campaign for the Lions of the North, prior to the break due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

“We consider the following, how old is the player first? Will the club buying him benefit on sell-on fees in the future? If hypothetical speaking we were talking of a player of (Phakamani) Mahlambi’s age (22), and let’s say Mahlambi was playing regularly and with no injuries, there would be a possibility. Mahlambi has three league titles already, and only at his age. He is a Bafana Bafana player and has played in the U20 Afcon. He’s won titles with Al Ahly, Wits and Sundowns. All I am saying is that even the same Mahlambi at only 22 years of age, and say with no injuries and with regular game time, he wouldn’t be worth that much. Remember that Mahlambi could still be sold to an overseas club by the club that would buy him, because he’s got age on his side,” said Mareke.

“But with Shalulile…one, we know that he is injury prone. He can give you goals, but how many games can he play (Shalulile has started in all 24 matches in the league for Highlands this season)? Chances are, with the big boys he will drown. You also look at the goal ratio, you look at his age, because he is not a youngster, and he is a foreigner. He’s not in the calibre of (Collins) Mbesuma, Chesa Mpama (Denis Lota), (Benjamin) Mwaruwari and (Christopher) Katongo. When you take up a space in the foreign quota of the big clubs you need to be playing regularly. We need to price our players based on reality,” the YoBoy Management agent added.
