Tshabala joined the Ernst Middendorp-led side earlier this month, however he is currently carrying a minor injury but says he is working on his fitness and can’t wait to fully recover.

“The guys made me feel at home and I’m settling well. I also came here with my family, so I’m okay,” Tshabalala was quoted on the club’s website.

“So far so good, I had a minor injury, but now I feel a big difference. I’m not yet involved in contact sessions, but I’m working on my fitness and I’m doing very well. Soon I’ll be involved in everything the guys are doing.”

The central defender has made a plea to the Team of Choice fans to carry on supporting the club.

“I could see on TV or when we came to play at Harry Gwala, the stadium was full. I ask them to continue with the support, we will make them happy this season,” he said. “We are not here to add numbers, but to add value and bring happiness to them,” he concluded.

Tshabalala and company will have to fight with everything they have in order to regain the faith shown to them by the club’s supporters following a horrible season which saw them save their Absa Premier League status on the last day of the league fixtures.
