Tshabalala reveals secret behind Shalulile success


Former Highlands Park coach Victor Tshabalala has revealed the secret behind mercurial striker Peter Shalulile's success.

Shalulile has registered an incredible 18 league goals this season and looks on course to surpass the elusive 20-goal mark.

Since its formation in the 1996/97 season, only Collins Mbesuma (25), Siyabonga Nomvethe (20), Wilfred Mugeyi (22) and Pollen Ndlanya (21) have scored twenty or more goals in a single campaign.

"I was fortunate to work with Shalulile for three years, I remember when I arrived at Highlands Park with Owen da Gama his confidence was low," Tshabalala tells KickOff.

"He started working very hard in training though, when training began at 10:00, already at 09:15 he would be on the pitch.

"He was very fond of the rondos, you would always find him inside the circle.

"After training, he was the last to leave the field doing his extra training.

"What people are seeing now is what we witnessed three years ago that would achieve more than everyone else because he outworked everyone.

"His target is that he wants to go play in Europe, that's why he is working so hard.

"He doesn't give up that easily as he's a man of God, I think he will also reach the 20 goals."
