Mamelodi Sundowns co-head coach Manqoba Mngqithi has praised hattrick hero Peter Shalulile and also singled out George Maluleka after their 4-2 win over Swallows.
Shalulile’s three and a goal from Surprise Ralani handed the DStv Premiership leaders three points at Dobsonville Stadium on Wednesday evening.
Mngqithi said the Namibian striker is is one of the most professional players he’s ever worked with, and he’s delighted to see him leading the goalscoring race.
“The most important thing man, with Peter, he deserves that reward of scoring goals,” Mngqithi told the club’s media department.
“Because he’s one of the most professional players I’ve ever worked with in my career.
“One player that never puts his foot wrong in terms of giving himself and giving his heart to the team.
“And I’m sure everyone in the club is excited to have a player like him because he’s such a good role model Even when things aren’t going well for him, but he works the hardest in the team. And that’s very important.”
Mngqithi also singled out Maluleka, who made his first league start of the season.
“George Maluleka, the previous match he scored a goal, had an assist this time around,” Mngqithi added.
“He also has an assist, that’s very positive because he is one player that we believe has got some quality to help the team.
“But his commitment and the willingness to improve is shown and it’s very clear, and that is very encouraging to us.”
