Kaizer Chiefs winger Siphiwe Tshabalala says he would find it an achievement to retire at the club he joined more than a decade ago whenever he decides that his legs can’t handle the game anymore.

Shabba is the longest serving player currently at Chiefs and with his contract coming to an end, the player’s future is secured as the club have already indicated that they will be opening contract talks with him very soon as only four months are left in his current deal. The player is also more than willing to extend his stay in order to fulfil his goal of retiring there.

“My contract is coming to an end at the end of the season, but I’m happy and my focus is to continue working hard, do what I love and work for the team. I’m not worried about my future. I would love to retire here. I’ve been with the club for 11 years and it has been nothing but success”, revealed Tshabalala

The 33 year old who is famous for scoring the opening goal in the 2010 FIFA World Cup will hope his experience can lead his team to victory over league contenders Cape Town City Tomorrow and see his team move closer to winning league honours this season.
