Chiefs boss welcomes Tshabalala
Kaizer Chiefs Managing Director Kaizer Motaung has officially welcomed back 'Amakhosi's new signing Siphiwe Tshabalala, a former protege from the Chiefs Youth Development Programme.
"Siphiwe joins us with an international pedigree after featuring for our national team in the recent qualifier for the Africa Cup of Nations competition," said Motaung in his column on the club's official website.
He added: "It was however unfortunate that we had to part with a lot of money to secure his services after being groomed by us; something that clearly reflects some challenges in our development programme.
"This is obviously something that is worth looking into as we move to re-generating our programme so that we do not produce and lose young talent to other clubs. In any case, we welcome him back home and hope that his presence will bolster the squad."
Motaung said he was looking forward to an eventful second stanza of the league.
"The Amakhosi will undoubtedly wage a relentless effort to lift the trophy and equally add to the silverware that graciously make us a successful entity."
The Chiefs boss concluded his column by thanking every individual who contributed immensely towards the growth and development of 'Amakhosi'.
"For 37 years, we have been blessed by your unselfish sacrifice that was displayed in many different ways until we reached the current levels of our existence.
"Those who gave their lives and dedicated their talent in building a brand that has now become a powerhouse of South African sports have humbled me.
"Through trial and error, victory and defeat, we have collectively outdone ourselves by proving that dreams do come true when those that share the same vision, spare their God-given talents to create legends and monuments that last forever."
