‘Shabba’ Hopes His Award Will Inspire Chiefs To Victory
Siphiwe Tshabalala Hopes To Win More Trophies With Kaizer Chiefs
Kaizer Chiefs’ Siphiwe Tshabalala hopes that his Goal of the Season trophy will inspire his team to pick up more silverware in the 2017/18 PSL season.
‘Shabba’ was the Amakhosi’s only winner at the PSL Awards on Tuesday evening as Ramahlwe Mphahlele lost out to Thulani Hlatshwayo of Bidvest Wits, with the show bringing the curtain down on the 2016/17 season.
The midfielder’s fine strike against SuperSport United saw him handed the Goal of the Season award and he is eager for it to be a catalyst for more victories in the months to come.
Speaking to Chiefs’ official website after his win, Tshabalala said, “It always feels to be rewarded… I am grateful. Credit goes to Kaizer Chiefs. This can’t happen without the opportunity and the support from the club.
“It is humbling to be voted in by supporters because they make this game to be the beautiful game. I trust this award will inspire our team as we embark on a journey to get back to lifting trophies.”
Chiefs have now gone two whole seasons without a single piece of silverware at the club and Steve Komphela will be hoping to turn things around in the third season of his three-year contract at Naturena.
