Message To Soweto Derby Hero: ‘Hang In There & Keep Working Hard’

Having already encouraged Justice Chabalala to remain positive at Orlando Pirates, this despite his lack of regular game time, former defender Tonic Chabalala has told the Giyani-born centre-back that he is still in the plans at the Soweto giants.

The former Free State Stars player starred for the Buccaneers in the Carling Black Label Cup Soweto Derby match against Kaizer Chiefs when selected to the starting line-up by the supporters on July 27.

The player’s performance earned him rave reviews also from the club’s head coach Milutin Sredojevic.

However, against Bloemfontein Celtic in the first match of the season, Chabalala remained an unused substitute, while he has also not been included to the Buccaneers’ 28-man squad for the CAF Champions League.

“Justice Chabalala must just hang in there and keep working hard. The fact that he wasn’t released from the club at the end of last season shows that they still have plans for him. He must keep on working hard while waiting for his chance. He should try to keep his head up and avoid being discouraged by his current situation. He should focus on his game,” said Tonic Chabalala.
