Why Shabba Didn’t Return To Chiefs

Siphiwe Tshabalala has explained why he did not return to Kaizer Chiefs when he returned to South Africa from Turkey.

Speaking to Velile Mnyandu for the second edition of iDiski Times, Tshabalala says that sometimes things happen for a reason, and when Sandile Zungu bought Amazulu, the path of his journey changed.

“I once said before I left that I would like to come back and finish off my career at Chiefs but it did not happen you know, everything happens for a reason,” Shabba told Mnyandu for iDiski Times.

“Maybe it was a blessing in disguise, we met with Sandile in 2013 and then seven years later he buys a team. You know, he wants me to walk this journey with him.”

“And there’s no hard feelings, I’m grateful for that opportunity that I got at Chiefs. And I’d like to think that I made the best out of it. The stats are there and so are the records, no one will take that away from me, and I will always be grateful to the supporters.”

“And also I want to acknowledge the love that the public always has for me, I don’t take that for granted.”

“Obviously it’s because of what I’ve done over the years and the brand that I have working worked so many years to build the brand Siphiwe Tshabalala.” 

“I moved to another team but the brand is still there and it’s still strong, for me the journey continues, it’s just a different chapter.”
