Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns striker Cuthbert Malajila has confirmed he is set to exit the club at the end of June following a six year period with the Brazilians.

The 33-year-old has struggled to break into the starting line-up in recent seasons with the likes of Lebohang Maboe, Jeremy Brockie and Emiliano Tade often preferred in the number nine role in 2018/19 as well.

Nonetheless, the Zimbabwe ace says he has no regrets about his time in Pretoria as he has won everything on offer domestically with coach Pitso Mosimane's side.

Speaking to Zimbabwels Sunday Mail, he said: "After six years with Mamelodi Sundowns, it is time for me to seek a new challenge elsewhere since I have achieved everything I could wish for.

"I won every domestic cup available in South Africa from Absa Premiership, Nedbank Cup, Telkom Knockout and the biggest of them all the Caf Champions League, so I am happy I left my mark there.

"This was my last season with Sundowns, I won everything there, so I want to finish my career enjoying football not watching others play."

He concluded he felt he still has plenty to offer a new team: "I still believe in myself, I know what I can offer, so I am looking forward to the next step of my career.

"My manager is working on finding me a new club, when we get the best deal possible which is appealing to me, we will sit down and talk."
