Is Shalulile Good Enough For Europe?

Will Europe come calling for Shalulile? Catch the debate on the by clicking on the podcast player below!

As the PSL heads towards the business end of the season, it is becoming more and more unlikely the log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns will be caught as they now hold a gap of 14 points, with second-placed Royal AM too far behind the Brazilians.

Another aspect of this season that seems unlikely, is Peter Shalulile not receiving the Player of the Season Award. The Namibian striker has scored an impressive 21 goals so far this campaign, after securing a phenomenal record of two hat-tricks in back-to-back matches. The 28-year-old is well on track to overtake Collins Mbesuma’s record of 25 goals in a single season.

The Sundowns man has been in fine form for a few seasons now and a question that has run through everyone’s mind, is why isn’t he in Europe? Some would say that the salary at Sundowns is too good to turn down, others would say that he is flourishing in South Africa, why would he play second fiddle in Europe? Ultimately, is he good enough for Europe? Being 28 years old, many European clubs would commit a risk analysis on the player, but maybe a move to North Africa is the right decision. Or is he where he is meant to be?

The UEFA Champions League has reached the semi-finals with two Spanish teams and two English teams left. All four of these teams had to fight to get into the semi-finals but none more fairytale-like than Villareal after the Yellow-Submarine beat the Bavarian giants (Bayern Munich) away, to reach this spot. Soccer Laduma international news correspondent Kurt Buckerfield says, “this Villareal story is beautiful.”

On the latest episode of the International News Desk Special, former Mamelodi Sundowns and Ajax Cape Town goalie Sean Roberts discusses the levels that Peter Shalulile is reaching. Sean and Kurt chat about the UCL semi-final fixtures and who is next in line for the Manchester United job!
