Mamelodi Sundowns striker Peter Shalulile has urged the Yellow Nation to come out in numbers when they finally lift the DStv Premiership trophy at the Chatsworth Stadium on Saturday.
Shalulile was recently named Player of the Month for April after netting back-to-back hat-tricks against Golden Arrows, in a month when Sundowns also booked their spot in the Nedbank Cup final.
The 28-year-old is currently experiencing his best campaign in the DStv Premiership, having already netted 22 goals from 29 matches, and is close to breaking Collins Mbesuma’s record for the most goals in a single season.
However, Shalulile is not focused on that as his name is already written in the history books, but instead on getting the club’s supporters to the stadium to witness them lift their fifth consecutive DStv Premiership title.
“To be honest, winning the DStv Player of the Month for April I would first like to give glory to God [because] He made it possible as well as my teammates and everyone at Sundowns,” Shalulile told his club’s official website.
“It’s a great feeling, it’s overwhelming to receive such an award because everyone put in the hard work, from the technical team to the players and the Mamelodi Sundowns family and fans. I am really happy to receive this award and I am hoping for many more to come.
“In the month of April, I managed to score two hat-tricks back to back against Swallows and Arrows, and it was really an amazing feeling. I guess I will go down in the history of South African football.
“To the Masandawana family, the fans and everyone who support us, I would like to thank them first and foremost for attending our games because they’ve come through for us and packed the stadium even during the difficult moments they stood with us and as we are about to go and lift the trophy, I would like to urge everyone to come and witness and enjoy the day with us.”
