Bigger Plans For Shabba At Usuthu?

Siphiwe Tshabalala may not be playing at AmaZulu, but there could be bigger plans for him at the club beyond the playing field.

'Shabba' joined Usuthu before the start of the current season, signing a two-year deal with the KZN outfit as he made a return to football after more than a year out of the game.

The 36-year-old has struggled with injury and game-time since signing a contract, making just one appearance against Golden Arrows earlier this season.

Tshabalala and club president Sandile Zungu have known each other for years and Shabba considers the businessman a mentor. It was Zungu who played a key role in Tshabalala making a move to KZN and the Siya crew has established Shabba could be used in another role beyond the playing field in future, should he be unable to break into the team. The former Kaizer Chiefs winger is seen as someone who can help raise the AmaZulu brand with his stature in the game.

As things stand, it looks as though Tshabalala is not in the plans of current Usuthu coach Benni McCarthy, who recently dodged a question on whether or not the player is on the transfer list or not. McCarthy was unable to answer the question, saying he did not want to reveal which players have been placed on the list.
