‘They Are Pricing The Poor Boy Out Of His Opportunities’

In the wake of transfer talk about Namibian international Peter Shalulile, the player’s employers at Highlands Park have evaluated the in-form striker at R30 million, while indicating that no club in Mzansi would be able to afford him.    

In the Absa Premiership so far this season, Shalulile has scored 12 goals – which is the same tally for SuperSport United’s Bradley Grobler and Bonginkosi Ntuli of AmaZulu – the two players who are linked with Orlando Pirates.

While the focus for the Namibian would be on chasing the league’s leading goal-scorer Gabadinho Mhango for the Golden Boot on the return of the league, it wouldn’t be a surprise for him to also be on the radar of a number of clubs.

However, the R30 million price tag that the Lions of the North have put on the 26-year-old player’s head could scare a number of suitors.

“In the South African market or the African market, that’s a big price tag on the boy’s head. But if the owners of the player – the club that he plays for – want that money nothing that anyone one can do. He is a national team player. He plays for Namibia and he is the leading goal scorer. From the time they (Highlands Park) signed him and up to now, his value has gone up,” former Kaizer Chiefs and Namibian midfielder Robert Nauseb said.

“But they are also pricing the poor boy out of his opportunities. Who in South Africa can pay R30 million? Maybe, if they decide to break the bank, Sundowns can be the only ones. Obviously, they would look at that price and evaluate him,” Nauseb told the Siya crew.
