Tintswalo Tshabalala still on the hunt for a club after leaving Platinum Stars

Posted: 15 August 2017 Time: 09:44

Veteran utility man Tintswalo Tshabalala is plotting his next move after his brief training stint with Maritzburg United proved fruitless following his release by Platinum Stars.

Tshabalala was recently with Maritzburg after Dikwena chose not to take up the option of a further year on his contract.

“Maritzburg mentioned something to do with budget issues so I am back home waiting on the next opportunity,” he tells

The left footer was offloaded by Stars after five years with the club and is still disgruntled with the way his stay ended.

“I had an option of a further year with the club as I had signed a one plus one deal but then they chose not to take up that option," he explains.

"I felt they should have at least informed me well in advance about this instead of waiting until July 4 to let me know to make it known.

"What hurts is that I travelled with the team to Algeria for a CAF Confederation Cup match which was played on June 30 and then came back two days later after which I then reported to the club a day later only to be told that I wasn’t needed anymore, just like that."

Tshabalala – who turns 35 next year – remains convinced that he will still be able to get another good move.
