Highlands Park striker Peter Shalulile says he was convinced to join Mamelodi Sundowns for next season due to the opportunity to play in the CAF Champions League.

The 26-year-old finished the 2019/20 Absa Premiership season as joint-top scorer with 16 goals, alongside Orlando Pirates star Gabadinho Mhango.

The Namibia international will join Sundowns ahead of the 2020/21 campaign, along with fellow Highlands star Mothobi Mvala.

"All I can say is I'm grateful to go there," Shalulile told KickOff.

"I'm very happy that I'm going there you know, to add more value, and to learn. I've always wanted to play at Sundowns, wanted to play CAF in Africa.

"So, they gave me the platform to play in Africa and I'm grateful for that. They've been communicating with my manager."

"Ja, you have to be grateful for what you get in life sometimes. It's all about the belief you know, the belief you have in yourself and your ability," he added when asked about the Golden Boot award.

"If you've got that you will definitely do it you know. It's the encouragement from the coaches when they say as a striker you always have to be in the box if you want to score goals.

"And that's definitely what I did, we stayed in the box, waited for the right opportunity and when the opportunity comes you take it from there."
