Kaizer Chiefs legend Siphiwe Tshabalala is celebrating 10 years with the Glamour Boys, and he took to Instagram to reveal his fears of potentially losing the deal a decade ago. Can you guess what he is talking about?
The midfielder joins an elite group of players to have stayed so long at the club, and this month marks his 10-year anniversary with Chiefs, having joined them from Free State Stars in 2007.
His transfer, however, wasn't easy as an injury to his knee put the deal in serious jeopardy. "Shabba" took to Instagram to reveal his anxieties over the transfer, only for it to all work out in the end.
Here is what he wrote on the social media platform: "Back in 2007, I made my dream move from @fs.stars (Free State Stars) to @kcfcofficial (Kaizer Chiefs). Soon after signing with the team I went for medicals and I was shocked by the results that my knee was not OK and it needed surgery.
"I was so devastated and I thought Chiefs were going to terminate my contract. Instead, they were very supportive, especially Bobby Motaung. My operation was a success and I was on the sidelines for six months.
"Once again, I would like to thank those who were with me from day one: family, friends, players and coaches past and present. @fs.stars, thank you for granting me the opportunity to do what I love, and to the Amakhosi nation, I thank you for your love and support. It has been a great 10 years of my career. The journey continues..."
