What’s the story?

When it comes to fan favourite players in the local game, it can be said that Shabba is one of the most popular players in South African football history.

With his unmistakable dreadlocked look, Tshabalala thrilled fans throughout his career with his eye-catching displays, with many feeling that a move abroad for the left-footer should have materialized much earlier in this career.

   

Chiefs Hero

Shabba spent more than a decade with Kaizer Chiefs, where he became a stalwart in the club’s starting XI. Usually, one of the first names on the team sheet, the winger’s success with Amakhosi is thoroughly appreciated by his adoring supporters.

That said, Shabba recently returned to the FNB Stadium where he took to his Instagram account in uploading an image of himself standing at a goal post on the pitch.

 

Soccer City Legend

He captioned his post by saying, “Back at the FNB Stadium”, which no doubt evoked nostalgia for the ex-Chiefs number 14.

When it comes to memories, Shabba’s opening goal at the 2010 FIFA World Cup could well be up there with the best moments at the famous grounds.
