CAPE TOWN – New Mamelodi Sundowns signing George Maluleka is enjoying life at the club having joined the reigning DStv champions in July from Kaizer Chiefs.

One thing Maluleka has encountered at the Brazilians is the number of players who can play in his position, but that’s something he feels is good for the club.

“Competition is always good, especially in an environment like Mamelodi Sundowns,” Maluleka, who has played two games in the league – both off the bench – so far this, told the club’s website.

“You have to be at your best every time you get a chance so it’s very good for the team as well. It makes us stronger as a collective and also pushes you as an individual,” Malukela continued.

“When it comes to the media, to be honest, I have never really paid attention to allegations or rumours that said as my only focus and objective is to play football so I try by all means to avoid such, so I stay focused on the journey ahead.

Recent rumours have linked the 31-year-old with a shock move away from the club he joined just in July. Last month, Sean Roberts, Maluleka’s agent rubbished such rumours, saying the player has settled in well, something reiterated by the former Amakhosi star.

“There’s still a lot of work to be done from my side but it’s very early to tell. I’ve been doing well and working hard at training steadily to find my best self to help the team and make an impact,” he said.

“It’s a matter of confidence, but a lot of progress so far,” he said.
