Shabba Amongst Top Danger Zone Creators

Where Siphiwe Tshabalala Dominated Last Season

By Kyle Smith - Jul 02, 2017 08:57 AM @KyleLaduma

Kaizer Chiefs’ Siphiwe Tshabalala’s brilliance this season is reflected in his statistics in terms of the work that he does in the danger zone.

RADIO: Phil Masinga & Janusz Michallik Pay Tribute To Doctor Khumalo On His 50th!

Shabba, as he is affectionately known in football circles, created the fifth most danger zone shot assists per 90 minutes in the 2016/17 season. The danger zone is the central area inside the box in front of goal and it is where the majority of goals are scored.

The 32-year-old recorded just two assists in the league last season, but that figure is perhaps not a true reflection on the creative impetus that he possesses and put on display throughout the season, which earned him the Player of the Year title at the Glamour Boys’ end of season award.

In fact, the dreadlocked maestro assisted 1.39 shots per 90 minutes over the course of the season, which indicates that it was more a case of his teammates failing to put the finishing touches on his plethora of attacking movements.

Reports: New Chiefs Signing Confirms Move

Joining Tshabalala in the top five of the leaderboard for the category are Thabo Mosadi (1.54), Aubrey Ngoma (1.55), Thuso Phala (1.6) and Elias Pelembe (1.73). The former Free State Stars midfielder can also boast the eighth-best shot assists per 90 minutes tally, with 2.33 shot assists per 90 minutes.

Do you think Tshabalala deserves more credit for his creative influence in the Kaizer Chiefs team last season?

You can't mention Sundowns (African Champs) and chiefs in one sentence. That's a disrespect to CAF.

The likes of Sundowns, Al Ahly, Wydad, Esperance.... are playing in Africa. While we are being told of Shabba and his danger zones. What has those danger zones won for chiefs??? If it's not danger zones it's Bruce Bvuma's R5000 (before tax) per month salary.

What a wasted talent, Shabba plays in Africa only when his In Bafana after every 8 months, shame man. If you play for Chips you remain only in PSL and they keep you from exeling

REMINDER : Kings of Africa Mamelodi Sundowns have reached the Champions League quarter-finals after edging St George 1-0 in their penultimate Group C match in Ethiopia on Saturday. Anthony Laffor sniped the spoils from close range in the 85th minute at Addis Ababa Stadium.

Tell them coweditor, the Shabba haters are confused. He even played as a striker last season due to supplying strikers that are allergic to converting chances

Surely.It was just the case of no quality finishers that let him down last season.Rama sa well was in the mix creating too many scoring opportunities but finishing was of very low standard.this season made me to remember Torealba and Schalwyk.Wow!What a combination that was!
