Shabba hints at contract renewal

Posted: 30 October 2014 Time: 09:16 pm

Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala has hinted that he would prolong his stay at the club beyond the expiry of his current contract next year.

Shabba’s contract with the club runs until June 2015 and in a conversation with KickOff.com about his future, the 30-year-old suggests he would gladly sign a new contract to stay on as a Glamour Boy.
 
“My contract will be up next year in June … we haven’t started negotiating for a new one yet,” Tshabalala confirms.
 
“But I’m a Kaizer Chiefs player and I’m very happy, I’m well looked after by the club. So for now I’m still part of Kaizer Chiefs, I still have a contract with Kaizer Chiefs,” he says.
 
Tshabalala, who’s been at Chiefs since January 2007 after joining from Free State Stars, admits that anything is possible in football, specifically with transfers. However, he is adamant that the club has done its part in terms of looking after him and therefore, he would be happy to stay.
 
“You know what, you never know what tomorrow holds. Sometimes football can be a funny game, but for me it was a dream come true to play for Kaizer Chiefs. I have been with the team for close to eight years now and I have enjoyed every moment.
 
“Chiefs is a very ambitious team with a rich history … we will see, but like I said I’m very happy at Chiefs and I have never complained about anything, not even once,” Tshabalala concludes.
 
The Phiri-born midfielder made his debut for Amakhosi as a substitute on 31 August 2007, the day Chiefs lost 1-0 to Bidvest Wits, and he has gone on to make over 200 appearances in the gold and black.

Last season he had one of his most prolific seasons in the creative sense, setting up 17 goals in all competitions for his side – by far the highest number of assists in the PSL in 2013/14.

Today you saying we have a not so strong bench tomorrow you saying we must sell Shabba and Khune.

As we speak Masango has no direct strong competitor.

You sell Shabba today and tomorrow Lebese lose form as he lacks consistency, what do you do?

Someone is saying Mngadi, Ekstein, Karuru, Matombo and Dladla and I say let them at least get to another round in the MCDC then maybe we can rely on them as competent cover.

Shabba might be off form but to think we can the current squared can cope without them it's utter delusion.

Bafanawalikhos After he blasted a ball that ended up being the first WC 2010 goal, he became a star overnight but yet he failed Crystal Palace trials. He was the peanut butter of every bafana coach's lunch box ... the Yum Yum that comes in a platic bottle that never breaks no matter how hard it fell.

Apparently, this thing drew inspirations from celebrities like Somizi and he choreographed dance moves fooling all the fans into thinking we are going to AFCON 20-what-what. We have been made to believe there is no replacement, yet Jersey #10 is donned by a benchwarmer at his club. 

And boy, he can run tirelessly, but make no mistake, the all time most energetic cow record belongs to none other than David Radebe. He sticks to using one foot but it does not make him a magician like the unparalleled all time voting chart-topping yellow legend Roger Feutmba. 

Now here we are, as GI puts it, the boy has reach the wrong side of 30 and some fans still think this Shakes Mashaba snubbed-and-shiboboed cow can manage to get game time in the star studded sundowns. If its a joke, then somebody definitely needs to step up his humour game. 

Moving along swiftly, Teko, Zungu, Zwane, Ejike, Cheeseboy, Mahachi, Billiat, Laffor, Kekana, Mbatha, Ngele, Dolly, Percy Tau, Pelembe ... the real Pelembe ... there it is boys. Now you tell me sundowns would be interested in this player when sundowns rejected Lebese. He aint no Manyisa. Sundowns want Manyisa, Vilakazi and Gabadhino. 

Dont throw us junk guys please, retirement home, is swallows and aces.

Senzo Meyiwa Love Rhino Because he is a cow. Try offering 800k to Teko, sundowns will counteroffer R1m p/m. Dude, we even signed the dangerous Guinea Ebola for R11m, ungazophapha la.

T-Man wa leKhosi (R.I.P Senzo) Masango came back from 8 years of benchwarming into being a 1 term wonder. He is already off form. Somebody tell him the hand bandaging style was cool during the days of Andries Sebola not now. Cant even understand why he is still called the future while he is the longest serving active player at the club who has lots of medals that he never played for.

Am not going to entertain the 8 years on the bench nonsense because it is unfounded.

Masango was a regular under VV and on the other season he played more than 25 games in all competitions.

And only an ignorant person doesn't know that Masango joined KC at 17 years from an amateur Walter Stars team so realistically he was not going to be a regular straight away.

In our League only Ajax field teenagers.

Where was Themba Zwane, Zungu, Percy, Mbatha, Dolly, Ngele when Masango got a professional contract 8 years ago if they are extra ordinary players?

When Masango was a professional league player and a regular on junior national teams what were they doing?

@metalwolf Don't talk about something you don't know, the reason why masango put that bandage its because he injured him self while celebrating a goal..he got injured by those boards while trying to jump them

T-man there is no more MCDC for chiefs so those players you mentioned must up their game to impress Baxter we really need competition. .masango is not off form but its the type of play we are playing nw since shaba n parker came bk..we would've appreciated if shaba n parker being used in the second round not rush them

On the bandage thing once again you exposing your ignorance, when the season started Mandla did not had a bandage in fact in his career he did not had a bandage until his hand got a recurring knock, just like Parker last season.

If you wanna talk fashion tell Kuda Muhanchi, Manqele and Billiat that blonde was cool during Skapi Malatsi days.

Tell Ntethe that GrandPix soccer boots where cool during Mgababa days.

Tell Kennedy Mweene watching the ball sailing to the net was cool during Roger de Sa goalkeeping days.

Tell Pitso crying on national TV is cool during kindergarten days.

I know they are out of the MCDC and am disappointed in them as senior team players they should have do better if they want us to take them serious as cover for current 18 ( rather 15) men squad.
