Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs attacking midfielder George Maluleka has hailed his team-mates for their tremendous achievements following their impressive run in the 2014/15 Absa Premiership campaign.

The Phefeni Glamour Boys walked away with double success this past season, claiming the MTN8 competition and their fourth Absa Premiership title.

The former Ajax Cape Town star player told Sport24 in an exclusive interview that Chiefs showed tremendous improvement after finishing the previous season empty handed.

“Winning the league and the MTN8 Cup were our highlights of the season as a team,” said Maluleka.

“It’s every team’s wish to win silverware and fortunately for us we were victorious on two occasions.

“It really showed a lot of improvements after finishing the previous seasons empty handed.

“We had our ups and downs at some stage in the season but we really stood up as a team and worked hard.

“And I’m glad because we were rewarded for our efforts at the end of the day.”

The industrious midfielder’s heroics at the early stages of the season earned him the MTN8 last man standing accolade, and Maluleka cited that he was ecstatic to finally get his first ever PSL individual accolade.

“It means a lot to me to be recognised for my efforts.”

“The competition was tough against Mandla (Masango) and Tefu (Mashamaite) but I won it in the end.

“I was very happy to win my first ever PSL accolade since I started playing in my career.

“And that was one of my highlights of the past season.”
