Mamelodi Sundowns announced on Thursday that midfielder George Maluleka will depart the club when his contract expires, just two seasons after making a controversial move from Kaizer Chiefs.
The midfielder moved to Chloorkop from Naturena when his contract with the Soweto giants expired but he failed to ever really break into the team at the highly competitive Downs.
Now with Tebogo Mokoena signing in Janurary and Sipho Mbule signing recently, the club have decided to let Mido leave.
Sundowns announced the news with a statement on their website which read:
