Where Does Shabba Fit In?

Times are a-changing. There are transitions under way in South African football. Many will keep their eyes glued to their screens to see how Kaizer Chiefs fare in the upcoming season. One big question remains: How long will Siphiwe Tshabalala's reign continue?

This speculation has arisen from Shabba himself, as he recently stated that he will have to work hard to cement his place in the team for the upcoming campaign, citing the arrival of players such as Keagan Buchanan and Edmore Chirambadare as possible hurdles.

"Maturity. You know a player has matured when he speaks like this. Some of us have no choice but to just like this player for who he is, on and off the field. He has his off days and at times he fails to deliver, but that doesn't take away his class and being the most recognisable SA football icon in our recent memory." – soccergod2

It seems many supporters are complimentary of Shabba's recognition of his need to work hard, and most see the competition as a blessing for the players and the fans.

"The competition should be there because he is a cost to our beloved team with his one leg. Maybe the coach should even bench him for the rest of the season." – Soccer "Diski" Fan

"Do your best Shabba, it might be your last season at Chiefs." – hluphy1591

Another supporter has stated that this situation reminds him of one experienced by another legend, and that South Africans may be too quick to write players off.

"I know you will come back very strong. They said Teko (Modise) is finished before he left Pirates, but he proved them wrong. When you are off form in Mzansi, they will say you are." – ravaza

Where do you see Shabba fitting in in the upcoming season? Is this one of his final seasons?
