Cape Town - Newly appointed Kaizer Chiefs captain Siphiwe Tshabalala says
he is still finding his feet in his new role.
The former Bafana Bafana regular has led the
team in three games and says that he is still getting used to being the
captain of the team.
"It's a big
responsibility to lead a team like Chiefs and I am getting used to it,"
"I am learning each and
everyday that I am captaining the team."
Last season the departed Tefu Mashamaite led the club for most of the season, while before that Itumeleng Khune wore the armband, who only re-signed with the club after Tshabalala’s appointment.
Tshabalala also said that while he is the one wearing the the armband, he is not the only leader on the field of play.
"I am surrounded by good
players who help me every time I walk onto the field," Shabba continued.
"It's a big job to be the
captain of Chiefs and I want to help the team win things and be successful.”
Tshabalala is set to lead
Chiefs again this Sunday when Amakhosi
take on Bloemfontein Celtic in the first-leg of the MTN8 semi-finals.
Kick-off is at 15:00.
