Why Jali Chose Sundowns Over Chiefs…

Andile Jali has suggested that he chose Mamelodi Sundowns over Kaizer Chiefs because of his ambition to win trophies in South Africa once again.
 
 
The 28-year-old former Orlando Pirates star has been a hot topic in recent weeks after it became clear that he would be on his way back to the Absa Premiership, and he finally put all speculation to bed on Friday as he was announced by Masandawana.
 
By the end of the saga it was believed that it was a two-horse race between Sundowns and Chiefs for his signature, but it appears that the Amakhosi’s three-season dry spell could have played a role in his decision.
 
Speaking to the club’s official website, the midfield man said, “I didn’t come back to South Africa to relax and just say that I am done because I am coming from Europe… I came to South Africa to win things, not to just relax and say that I am done. That’s why I came to Sundowns. I am here to show that I have that thing, to push other players to say that guys you can do it.
 
“I have learned a lot of things from my time in Belgium, especially how you bounce back from losing a game. You mustn’t lose hope until it’s done and you achieve your objective.”
 
Jali has penned a five-year deal with Sundowns that will see him through until beyond his 33rd birthday.
