“It’s crazier here than back home‚” joked Tshabalala after being continuously mobbed in the streets over the last few days.
“This Sunday’s game is going to be a lot tougher. Bursaspor are difficult to beat at home.”
But Tshabalala’s club are just two points behind Bursaspor in the Super Liga standings.
Erzurumspor are in their first season in the top-flight having been down in the fourth tier of Turkish football just eight years ago.
