Kaizer Chiefs captain Siphiwe Tshabalala wished South African football fans a wonderful festive season, and also warned them to be cautious on the roads.
Players and family of famous South Africans have been involved in tragic accidents during holidays in the past.
“We wish all our supporters and their families a merry Christmas,” says captain Siphiwe ‘Shabba’ Tshabalala, speaking on behalf of the Kaizer Chiefs team.
‘Shabba’ also thanks the entire Amakhosi Family for the year that was, as reported on the official Chiefs site.
“We had a good year, despite the disappointing two cup finals (MTN8 and Telkom Knockout). However, we lifted the 2014/15 Absa Premiership trophy in record breaking style.”
“With many deaths recorded already on our roads, we call on everybody to travel safely during the festive period,” comments Tshabalala, pleading in particular on people not to drink and drive.
“We want to see all our supporters again in 2016.”
