Reasons Why Shabba's Extension Is Good For Chiefs

Siphiwe Tshabalala is a name that automatically comes to mind when you think about Kaizer Chiefs's stars. Shabba has long been one of Chiefs' golden boys and the fleet-footed attacker will no doubt be happy to have extended his contract with the club.

Today the Fan Park crew takes a look at three reasons as to why extending his stay is vital and just how important Shabba is to Chiefs.

His Name At The Club

Shabba joined Chiefs in 2007 after shining for Free State Stars, proving to be one of the country's most talented players. After being at the club for eight years, he is sure to know the fabric of the club, what it means to play for Chiefs and is no doubt an inspiration to many young players at the club.

One Of Many Leaders

Along with names such as Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Tefu Mashamaite and Itumeleng Khune, Shabba is one of many leaders in the team. Having more than one or two leaders can only but benefit the squad with regards to unity and spirit.

Still Has Much To Offer

Many had thought that with the emergence of Mandla Masango and George Lebese, Shabba could see himself shoved down the pecking order at the club. However, that was not the case as towards middle of the season, Shabba was in a good run of form, picking up numerous Man of the Match awards in the process. At the age of 30, it appears then that the dreadlocked star is showing no signs of slowing down.

Are you happy with what Shabba is offering at the moment?
