Despite having turned 37 in September and currently without a club, Siphiwe Tshabalala has not thought about retiring from professional football just yet, this according to his representative, Jazzman Mahlakgane.
Tshabalala hasn’t had a club this season since he parted ways with AmaZulu prior to the start of the 2021/22 campaign.
While some reports have suggested that the Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana legend would be hanging up his boots, indications from the player’s camp are that the dreadlocked attacker is still looking forward to contributing to the game on the field to any team that could offer him a deal to share his experience with the younger ones.
“He has not (retired). But I don’t want to start any conversations about Shabba at the moment because I might get distracted as we are currently busy working on something for him,” said Mahlakgane.
Shabba had earlier planned to stay with AmaZulu for another season, as with former Chiefs and Bafana teammate Tsepo Masilela, however, a decision was made by the Durban-based club to part ways with the veteran attacker after he was not in the plans of head coach Benni McCarthy.
Mahlakgane would not be drawn into naming the club they are in discussions with for Tshabalala.
