Shabalala to fight for Chiefs chance

Mduduzi Shabalala, a budding star for Kaizer Chiefs, is hoping to earn a spot in the first squad after being selected for the DStv Compact Cup.

Shabalala is one of Chiefs' DStv Disk Challenge players who has been selected to compete in the newly-formed DStv Compact Cup later this month, with Sabelo Radebe.

The kid has been a standout in the Amakhosi's reserve divisions recently, scoring a hat-trick in a recent win over Royal AM, and making his senior team debut against Sekhukhune United last month.

Shabalala told the club's website, "I couldn't explain how delighted I was to have been a part of the first squad."

"The opportunity will present itself, and I will be able to play for the first team. My family and friends were ecstatic to see my name on the squad sheet."

He's looking to build on that accomplishment, as well as his performance against Royal AM, by competing in the Compact Cup and securing a spot in the first team.

"I was ecstatic to be chosen man of the match, and I'm even more ecstatic to have been selected for the DStv Compact Cup," the South African U-17 young international continued.

"This performance has given me a lot of confidence heading into the DStv Compact Cup. Being voted in demonstrates that I am a good football player who is well-liked by the public. I will continue to fight and do the right thing."
