Why Jali Chose Sundowns Over Chiefs…

Andile Jali Has Explained Why He Chose Sundowns Over Chiefs

By Soccer Laduma - Jun 09, 2018 06:33 PM
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.

If that was the case you were going to join a team which is not winning things these days and prove your impact. Going to Sundowns who are winning things without you, will not show much of your input. You avoided being exposed. After all being a Pirates person it was always going to be almost impossible to join Chiefs

He only wanted money, I'm glad Pirates rejected him... it is not guaranteed that when you sign him you'll win every game and he is not the only player in the team, if Chiefs rejected him it's a good move.. he is better with Sundowns where they give u whatever you want
