Peter Shalulile is a Namibian professional footballer who plays as a striker for South African Premier Division side Mamelodi Sundowns and the Namibia national team.
Peter is a product of Tura Magic FC in Namibia a club he joined when they were campaigning in the NFA Khomas second division and helped gain promotion in the 2011–2012 season.
He made his way up from the U-20 to the Senior Namibia National Soccer Team and scored crucial goals en route to their first ever trophy which was the COSAFA Cup in 2015.
He joined Highlands Park who were playing in the South African second tier at the time after an impressive showing at the COSAFA Cup in 2015 and helped them gain promotion.
His two crucial goals in the Playoff encounter against Mbombela at the Makhulong Stadium on Wednesday June 15, 2016 sent Highlands Park to the top flight of South African Football.
Midway through the 2019–20 season, the media speculated that Shalulile was being hunted by three of South Africa’s biggest clubs, Mamelodi Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.
This was all down to his mercurial performance in front of the goal. And indeed he finished the season as joint top goalscorer alongside Orlando Pirates’ Gabadinho Mhango.
At the end of that same 2019–20 season, the player and both Highlands Park F.C and Mamelodi Sundowns F.C confirmed that he has signed for the latter club.
He adapted fairly quick as he scored 4 goals in 7 league appearances. Shalulile is the second Namibian player to join Mamelodi Sundowns after Ronnie ‘The Magnet’ Fillemon Kanalelo, who played for the Brazilians between 1997 and 2005.
In his maiden season at Masandawana, Shalulile does not seem to be struggling with proving his worth to the club. His commitment in attack, defence and link up play with his teammates show exactly why Sundowns decided to sign him.
Salary at Sundowns
According to News Hub 360, the Namibian striker is currently earning R400 000 per month at the Chloorkop based side.
He is the 9th highest paid player at Mamelodi Sundowns, just behind players like Gaston Sirino, Kennedy Mween, Bongani Zungu, Andile Jali and Co.
