Shabba: We won't give up yet

Johannesburg - Siphiwe Tshabalala is holding out hope that Kaizer Chiefs can make a late surge for the league championship.

The winger, who returned from international duty with Bafana Bafana on Monday along with Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Itumeleng Khune, is not giving up on the PSL crown.

Amakhosi have drawn their last four encounters, which has seen them lose ground in the title race. Chiefs are fourth in the standings, six points adrift of Ajax Cape Town, who have played a game more than Vladimir Vermezovic's men.

'Shabba' admits the run of stalemates has been hard to swallow, but he wants his team-mates to continue fighting for league honours.

"I think our four consecutive draws in the league starting with Santos have been the most difficult thing for us to deal with this season. We did not expect that at all and we are very upset about it," he told Amakhosi Magazine.

"We can still turn things around. The league is very tight and we will not stop fighting. I would love to win the league with Chiefs."

Amakhosi's next PSL fixture is against BidVest Wits at Mbombela Stadium on Wednesday, 06 April.
