Shabba wanted to retire at Kaizer Chiefs. It is not a secret that Shabba has too much love for Kaizer Chiefs and he once said that Chiefs is home for him. He prays every for a chance to open up to reunited with the chiefs family.
“Yes, I wanted to. When I left, I said I would love to come back and end my career there, but unfortunately, it was not the case. I had to make peace with a lot of things and be in a position where I am happy and I am grateful. The setbacks should not be greater than the achievements and great career.
“I am grateful and the opportunity I have now is a big one, to play for Usuthu. This team is going to change. It’s growing and this team, in future, is going to be amongst the best in the country and I want to be part of that project from the beginning. I joined Usuthu because I wanted to, not because I had to. There’s a difference. I was not under pressure. It’s a decision that came from a good place. It’s a case of here’s this opportunity, let me go and take it.”
“In the beginning, there were talks. Jazzman (Mahlakgane, Shabba’s agent) did reach out at some point and then, after that, there was the ban as well. It also played a huge factor.
“But there’s no bad blood, we are good. I have a good relationship with ‘Bobsteak’ (Bobby Motaung) and Kaizer (Motaung) Jnr. There’s no bad blood,” Shabba added.
