Shabba’s Agent Fuming: Disrespect & Mediocrity…

Siphiwe ‘Shabba’ Tshabalala’s agent has rubbished reports linking the former Kaizer Chiefs star with a return to Mzansi, with a move to the ABC Motsepe League.

Some reports this week have indicated that the dreadlocked star could be back to play in Mzansi, turning out for Passion FC in the third tier.

While the 34-year-old did go to the club this week in what has been described as another way to motivate the players, reports of a possible deal for Tshabalala there have been dismissed by his agent Jazzman Mahlakgane.  

“I think it was very disrespectful of whoever came up with that report. If the whole thing was true, we would be talking a different story. Insinuating that the boy is going to Vodacom (ABC Motsepe League), I think that is disrespectful to him,” said Mahlakgane.

Tshabalala is currently unattached after parting ways with Turkish club BB Erzurumspor. Mahlakgane has confirmed that he is currently in talks for the star’s possible overseas return with another club.    

“The damage goes further because I am talking to a club overseas. Imagine if the overseas club sees the story and end up saying, ‘Here we are talking to the player’s agent while he knows that the boy is playing in the third tier in his own country’.

"Apart from disrespect, one would be seen as celebrating mediocrity by encouraging such rumours. We are talking here about the first South African national team player to have scored in the world cup (hosted in his country). How does one encourage him to go and play in the Vodacom (ABC Motsepe League)? There is nothing like that.

"It’s misleading the supporters to say that a player of Shabba’s calibre will be playing in the third tier,” confirmed the representative.
