Black Leopards recent signing Matimu “Vrrrr Phaa” Tshabalala believes he can use the experience he gained in his football journey to help save the relagation threatened Black Leopards.
Tshabalala joined Black Leopards during the January Transfer Window on a 1 year and 6 months deal after spending 6 months with the ABC Motsepe League outfit Emmanuel FC, he brings valuable experience at Lidoda Dhuva as he featured in big tournaments such as Lucky Lekgwathi and Alfred Maimane Phiri Annual Games, playing for the likes of Dlamini XI Experience , Ndengeza FC, Soweto Squad etc.
“I was so happy happy to move from ABC Motsepe League to GladAfrica Championship, everything that i’ve been praying for has come to light and the journey wasn’t easy at all as I started playing football at age 7 with George Makondo being the one who was training me most of the time when i was sitting home” Tshabalala told Africa Newz.
“I’ve settled in the club thus far and any challenges I come across I submit to God but my main goal at the moment is to make sure i help save the team from relegation.” Tshabalala has also revealed that he wishes to spread his wings even higher as he wishes to play for the two Limpopo based teams in the top flight league, Sekhukhune United and Marumo Gallants, as he believes he’ll get game time unlike Mamelodi Sundowns.
Tshabalala has made 2 appearances for Lidoda Dhuva so far.
