It seems French footballer Thierry Henry found a younger brother in Kaizer Chiefs’ Siphiwe Tshabalala on his recent visit to Mzansi.
During his visit, Henry went to Naturena and spent some time with the team, and Shabba did not hesitate to share the experience with his fans.
“Had a great time with @thierryhenry at the Village today. Such a gentleman very kind and humble, a true professional and an inspiration to many,” he said at the time, along with a few photos of them together.
Now Shabba has again taken to Instagram to show followers that his bromance with Henry didn’t end when the soccer star left the country. Following the Soweto derby in which Kaizer Chiefs got a goalless draw against Orlando Pirates, Henry checked up on Shabba, asking how the game went.
This was the conversation the two had:
Shabba also got a special message from his club after making his 30th appearance at the derby since December 2007.
