Shalulile to Mamelodi Sundowns is Career Suicide - Ronnie Kanalelo

We often see ex-football players come forth to offer free words of wisdom, and advice to young players about transfer moves.

Whether the players in question heed the call, and listens when the greats of the beautiful game speak is another matter altogether.

One thing certain is that it's a case of being there, done they must know better right? You be the judge.

An unlikely figure has come forth to indirectly warn and advice a fellow countryman.

Former Mamelodi Sundowns shotstopper Ronnie Kanalelo has revealed what are his thoughts on Peter Shalulile swapping Tembisa for Chloorkop.

Shalulile has been one of this season's revelation in front of goal in the Absa Premiership, with 12 strikes to his name before the season halt due to Covid-19.

The retired Namibia international thinks that the 26-year-old will have a chance to impress under Mosimane because of how Sundowns play, but thinks ultimately it wouldn't be a good move for him.

"For the type of player that I know he is, he likes to play on the break, and Sundowns like to play on the break [as well], I think he would have a chance...," Kanalelo as per 𝘚𝘰𝘤𝘤𝘦𝘳 𝘓𝘢𝘥𝘶𝘮𝘢.

"...But in the long run I don’t think he would do well, because when they [Mamelodi Sundowns] play against teams with a defensive approach, their game would not suit him. 

The legendary goalkeeper believes Shalulile is best when he plays regularly, and believes he will find it difficult at Sundowns.

"Personally, I think his game will die at some point [at Sundowns]. He needs a club where he can play regularly...week-in, and week-out." Kanalelo added.
