Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder George
Maluleka has downplayed rumours of his exit from the club, saying he is ‘very
happy’ at Mamelodi Sundowns despite limited game time.
Maluleka switched Kaizer Chiefs for
Sundowns at the beginning of the season, but only made 14 appearances in all
competitions in his maiden season at Chloorkop.
The 32-year-old has been linked with a loan
move, but Maluleka says he is going nowhere.
“To be honest, I think it’s because of
where I was, with me playing week in and out. Now I come here (to Sundowns), I
play, I don’t play, I play, I don’t play,” the former SuperSport United and Ajax Cape Town midfielder told media.
“I am very happy at Sundowns,
and I am in a very good space. George is happy, George is not going
“I have heard about these moves. If it
happens, it happens. If it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen. I am a Sundowns player,
and I am not going anywhere. I think (the first) season was good. I feel I
contributed where I could.
“A lot of people didn’t give me a chance and I
played. I did not play much, but I feel that I did well for my first season. It’s always amazing. You can’t
explain it, because you get players who play football their whole careers and
they end up retiring without even winning anything.
“For me to have already won
four titles is a big thing. I am very happy.”
