Cape Town - In-form and long serving  Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala, has expressed his delights following his 50th competitive goal in the Nedbank Cup win over the National First Division (NFD) based outfit, Stellenbosch United, on Saturday.

The Phefeni Glamour Boys cruised through to the last 16 of the Ke Yona competition, with an impressive 3-0 triumph at the fully packed Athlone stadium, courtesy of Tshabalala, Joseph Malongoane and Gustavo Paez strikes.

The former Bafana Bafana winger, Tshabalala, said that he is grateful to be one of the Chiefs greats who made history for the Soweto giants following his ten year service at the club.

“Yes I’m celebrating a milestone of 50 goals. I’m very honoured,” expressed Tshabalala.

“50 goals for this great team after spending another milestone of 10 years is a marvellous achievement for me. I wrote it (on his bandage) before the game and I was so determined to get one .

“And thanks to my teammates; both past and present as well as everyone for the support and contribution to this achievement. I wouldn’t have made it without them.

“So now the journey continues,” said Tshabalala. 

"Shabba" joined Chiefs from Free State Stars in July 2007.
