Cape Town - Former Kaizer Chiefs superstar Siphiwe Tshabalala says he was at training with ABC Motsepe side Passion FC to give moral support and advice.

Tshabalala ruled out any chance of making a move to the minnows after he departed Turkey's BB Erzurumspor at the end of 2018/19.

The attacking midfielder says he intends to continue his playing career though at this stage he could not reveal where his next port of call might be.

Shabba said: "No I'm in Mpumalanga because the owner of the team Passion Football Club, is a very close friend of mine.

"So he has asked me to come and motivate the team. I'm just here motivating the boys, and it was not necessarily a full session with them you see. So basically me being here is to motivate the boy's nothing more.

"At the moment because I have terminated with Erzurumspor there is something that we working on with Jazzman (Mahlakgane) you see. But I promise you as soon as it comes together I'll tell you first.

"But yeah, I'm just here to motivate the boys and hopefully inspire them yes. It was not a full session so I wouldn't say I was keeping fit you see. Even like tomorrow (Wednesday), I will assist the coach with some drills and then he will take over."
