Shabba tells Chiefs to persevere in final race for Absa Premiership title
Tshabalala also hailed praises on Khama Billiat who got on scoring sheet since September against Chippa United in Wednesday
Siphiwe Tshabalala, who happens to be Amakhosi legend has given Kaizer Chiefs some words of encouragement as they continue their race for a first Absa Premiership trophy in five years.
Three points should seal the deal for Middendorp’s side despite the tie at the top with Mamelodi Sundowns on 56 points, the goal difference is more for Chiefs’ side.
“Our guys must dig deep as a team, that’s so important to get a result,” Tshabalala, who won the league twice with Chiefs under Stuart Baxter, told the Amakhosi official website on Friday.
“This is the final lap,” he added.
“It’s all about those 90 minutes. Of course, the coach will do the line-up and discuss the tactics with the team, but thereafter it’s up to the players to do the job. Everyone has a role to play, including the guys who won’t start. My advice to the players: ‘Go out and enjoy’.”
Tshabalala also believes that the senior players who also won those two titles with him will be of help with Amakhosi’s race for the trophy.
“Senior players like Itumeleng Khune, Mulomowandau Mathoho, Willard Katsande and Bernard Parker have been in this situation, they have won the league. I am sure that they will talk with the younger guys and share their experience.”
“They will also tell their teammates, ‘forget about social media for now, let’s focus on what needs to be done on Saturday’.”
Tshabalala also hailed praises on Khama Billiat who got on scoring sheet since September against Chippa United in Wednesday.
“It was great to see Khama score. People have been hard on him and he got a lot of stick, but by scoring that goal, he sent out the message, ‘I am still Khama Billiat, I can still do it’.”
