Andile Jali has established himself in the South African football league following a successful career that has lasted for over 13 years. He currently plies his trade with Mamelodi Sundowns, one of the top clubs in the Premier Soccer League, where he earns about R550,000, approximately $33,000 as his salary. This makes him the highest-paid Mamelodi Sundowns player and his income is the major contributor to his estimated $3 million net worth.
With such a huge chunk of money to his name, it does not come as a surprise that Andile lives a very flamboyant lifestyle. This is evident in the luxurious home he owns and the fast cars that can be found in his garage.
Andile Jali Has Played For Several Top Clubs
Andile Jali, who is currently 33 years old, was born on 10th April 1990 in the city of Matatiele, South Africa. He developed a passion for football at a very tender age and when his parents spotted his potentials, they gave him the necessary support to pursue his dreams.
The young man was only 12 years old when he reportedly joined a young football team called Hot Spurs in 2002. Andile stayed with the team till 2005 before moving over to Matat Professionals in 2006. He stayed with the team for a year before joining National First Division side Pretoria University in 2007. The budding player eventually had his major breakthrough when he signed for Orlando Pirates in 2009. The next year he was called up to the national team which he later became captain.
Andile Jali’s stint with the Orlando Pirates was trophy-laden. In the 2010/2011 season, they won the league title and the MTN8 cup. The following year, they won the league title, MTN8 cup, as well as the league cup. More so, his sensational performance and contribution to the team’s success earned him a contract in Europe as K.V. Oostende signed him in 2014 for almost a million euros.
He Had a Four Year Stint in Europe Before Returning to SA to Play For the Sundowns
Andile was pretty much successful in the Belgian pro league; his most successful season there was in the 2015/2016 campaign when the team came fifth in the league. Unfortunately, there are no available details about his earnings with this club just like others he had played for in the past. However, it is speculated that he could have earned more in Belgium than he is currently earning. His wife’s complaints about his salary sometime last year support this.
