Johannesburg - Siphiwe Tshabalala is determined not to pay any attention to his
critics, and is focused on doing the business for Kaizer Chiefs as they
look to wrestle the PSL crown from Orlando Pirates.

However, the midfielder seems to have rediscovered his best form
since the turn of the year and was named Man of the Match at the weekend
after leading Amakhosi to a comfortable 3-0 Nedbank Cup last-32 win
over Bidvest Wits.
"I am happy with the contribution I am making in the team," Shabba told his club's official website.
"I feel that the coach (Stuart Baxter) has given me a second
chance and I really appreciate that. I am focusing on doing well every
time I am given an opportunity to don the gold and black.
"I was happy with the 'Man of the Match' award on Saturday but I think credit should go to everyone for giving their best.
"In the past four games I have been involved in about four or
five goals we have scored. I have played many games, I agree that in the
past couple of seasons I was a bit tired but I do rest whenever I get
time and I think I will rest more when we win the league.
"The rest when we win the league will be worth it for sure but for now I just want to contribute and help the team."
