Mngqithi admits over-dependence on Shalulile

Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi admits that his side are too dependent on striker Peter Shalulile.

Shalulile has been a phenomenon in the DStv Premiership over the past seasons. The Namibian frontman won the Lesley Manyathela Golden Boot award in 2019/2020, finished as runner-up last season and is the runaway leader this season and could even break Collins Mbesuma's record for most goals scored by one player in a single PSL season.

The 28-year-old has netted 22 times in league matches and is just three shy of the 25 scored by Mbesuma in the 2004/05 season.

After Shalulile, the next highest scorers for Downs are Teboho Mokoena, Themba Zwane and Pavol Safranko who have each notched five goals apiece, which certainly does reinforce the view held by Mngqithi that they are too reliant on Shalulile.

"As much as we have scored important goals, we have not scored enough in terms of the chances we have created. We are too reliant on Peter Shalulile in as much as there were many other players who chipped in with a few goals. I do believe we might look to reinforce that area. There are other areas which are probably not as primary as those areas. Those three positions really need reinforcement," said Mnqgithi.
