At the opening of the PSL transfer window, Maluleka was one of the hottest issues.
Now, as the final week approaches, he has been counseled on where to end his illustrious and storied career.
So, will he play for the Chiefs or the Pirates, or should he stay with Sundowns?
CHIEFS, PIRATES, OR SUNDOWNS – MALULEKA RECOMMENDED?
Wayne Arendse, a former Sundowns defender, has advised Maluleka to stay with the Brazilians. Given the busy schedule Sundowns has ahead of them, he believes Maluleka can still get game time. If he believes he has a chance, especially given Sundowns' busy calendar; they have the Champions League, they need to finish the league, and the Nedbank Cup is coming up, I'm confident he will have his chance; if he believes he has to battle for his place, I'm 100 percent behind him. He knows what he's worth and where he's at, so I think he should stick it out because with Sundowns' schedule, I'm sure he'll see more games. According to Arndse, the coach will have to use all of his players..
With Sundowns needing to rely on their squad's depth, this is a distinct possibility.
The Brazilians aspire to win the CAF Champions League, defend their DStv Premiership championship, and compete for the Nedbank Cup while chasing records.
