Former Chiefs Star Sends Tribute To Football Icon Who Recently Passed Away

Football is a sport that can bring people together and form bonds that can't be broken. It also has the potential to change people's lives and this is one of the reasons we love it so much. It is its own community and whenever there's within it hits hard for everyone close. We've seen a lot of people pass away over the last year from footballers to fans and we are yet to get used to it.

This star made a name for himself and amassed success and fortune during his time at Kaizer Chiefs. He is also considered a Bafana Bafana legend for his exploits in the FIFA world cup. He is well loved by fans and has a personality that you can't hate on. He clearly made special bonds during his time at Naturena and clearly still has a connection with his former team.

Siphiwe Tshabalala took to social media to share a tribute to a South African football icon and historian Nkanyiso Mathamba. It was reported that he passed away a couple of days ago, he was also a staunch fan of Kaizer Chiefs and that's where he formed a bond with Shabba. He went on to share pictures of them together during his days at Naturena and with Bafana Bafana.

This is definitely a loss for South African football as we don't have enough people documenting out history. Shabba was definitely touched by the passing of this man who wasn't an ordinary football fan. He was recognized and followed by the club as a loyal supporter and lifelong follower of the club.

Siphiwe Tshabalala is currently without a club after he was let go by Usuthu as the beginning of the season. There has been reports suggesting that he has retired, however he is yet to make an official announcement. He is currently 37 years old and this considered too old for an outfield player, however he can still make a return if he feels that he is fit enough although he won't need to.
