Mbesuma Hails Deadly Former Teammate

The record holder of South African first class football with regards to objective scoring, Collins Mbesuma, isn't astonished that his record of 25 association objectives is put under danger by his previous colleague Peter Shalulile.

The scorching Mamelodi Sundowns striker has 22 DStv Premiership objectives to his name and after going two games without finding the rear of the net, he should net a hattrick this Saturday to match Mbesuma's record. Downs will confront Royal AM in the association finale before they are given their gold decorations and fifth consecutive association titles.

"I like strikers who score objectives and Shalulile has been doing great for four seasons in the PSL. I feel he can break the record taking a gander at the manner in which Sundowns are playing and the structure he is in. The record is there to be broken. I came and broke the record, another player will come and break it. Anybody can come and break it," Mbesuma said in a YouTube video by LimSportZone.

"I hope everything turns out great for him and I know Peter since I played with him at Highlands Park, he is a modest fellow and he will really buckle down. I used to remain behind with him in the wake of preparing and do completing drills. He is generally open to learning and it's anything but an amazement since I realize he is a diligent employee. I realize he is feeling under tension yet he should relax," the previous Kaizer Chiefs star added.

Nowadays Mbesuma shows up for GladAfrica Championship side Pretoria Callies as his playing vocation is near twenty years as he made his expert presentation in 2003 for Zambian side Roan United.

He is one of the limited handful players to address the best three in Chiefs, Sundowns and Orlando Pirates. "Ntofo" holds the record of winning the Lesley Manyathela Golden Boot two times when he handled the sought after gong in 2005 and 2016. Shalulile may not arrive at Mbesuma's 25 objectives however he will go down as the second striker to guarantee the award two times after he won it in 2020 with The Lions of the North.

"I'm pleased with myself since when I came to South Africa I was only in the event that you discuss great strikers in South Africa, I am one of them. Presently I can't run the manner in which I used to quite a while back and for that reason I am more on the seat functioning as an associate mentor and a player," the 38-year-old said.
