Siphiwe Tshabalala is regarded as one of the most seasoned footballers we currently have in the country. As a veteran he is still considered as one of the few players at his age who can produce for his team.
The 36 year old Soweto born player grew up in a four roomed house with his cousins that was owned by his grandparents up until he was 19 years old.
Siphiwe Tshabalala is one of the most celebrated footballers in the country after having had successful career spells with Free State Stars and Kaizer Chiefs. He went to enjoy a career lasting more than a decade with the Phefeni Glamour Boys.
On a global stage, many people will remember him from his World Cup opening goal against Mexico. “Shabba” scored one of the most memorable goals of the tournament, a left footed strike that sent the crowds of the FNB Stadium to a buzz.
The former Kaizer Chiefs player is currently mourning the loss of his grandfather John Tshabalala who has sadly passed away. Messages of condolences have been pouring in for him during these difficult times.
** We would like to send our deepest condolences to the Tshabalala family as they currently going through difficult times. May they find comfort and warmth. Lala ngoxolo Baba.
