Before Wednesday morning’s training session, the team came together and Tshabalala was handed a jersey with special inscription on the front about his milestone.

Speaking on the occasion, Tshabalala said it was a blessing and he feels honoured to have reached such a milestone.

“This is a team that I grew up supporting and to have played 300 games for them is an honour. It was great that on the day I managed to score a goal and that the game was against my former team. I would like to thank Stars for giving me the opportunity to showcase my talent in the PSL (Premier Soccer League),” said Tshabalala.
