Siphiwe Tshabalala’s move to Turkey has been finalised and according to sources, Kaizer Chiefs are cashing in on a pretty penny for the 33-year-old.
It was confirmed on August 28, that Tshabalala left Chiefs for Turkish Super Lig outfit, Erzurumspor, after putting pen to paper on a three-year deal.
As reported in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, Siya sources have indicated that Amakhosi are set to cash in on around R6,5 million for the player’s services, as Shabba would have only seen his contract with Chiefs come to an end on June 30 of the year 2020.
Tshabalala spent 12 years with Chiefs, lifting all domestic trophies available in South Africa’s top flight; the Absa Premiership trophy, the MTN8 trophy, the Nedbank and Telkom Knockout Cup.
“The Kaizer Chiefs family would like to thank Shabba for his immense contribution to the success of club over an illustrious career spanning over 11 years as one of the Phefeni Glamour Boys. Keep shining and spread the spirit of Love & Peace to the world, Shabba!” Chiefs said on their official website following the player’s move.
