"Back in 2007 I made my dream move from Free State Stars to Kaizer Chiefs. Soon after signing with the team I went for medicals and I was shocked by the results that my knee was not okay and it needed surgery," Tshabalala wrote on his official instagram account.
"Was so devastated and I thought Chiefs were going to terminate my contract instead they were very supportive especially Bobby Motaung; my operation was a success and I was on the sidelines for six months.
"Once again I would like to thank those who were with me from day one: family,friends, my wife, my manager Jazzman,players and coaches past and present. Free States Stars thank you for granting me the opportunity to do what I love and to the Amakhosi nation ,I thank you for your love and support. It has been a great 10 years of my career. The journey continues."
