Ndlovu club-less but upbeat as deadline for registration nears

2010-08-17 00:00

FORMER PSL top goal-scorer Sandile “Ma-Gesh” Ndlovu, who is also known by the moniker “AK-47”. is still club-less but optimistic that before the deadline for the registration of players on the last day of this month, he will have found employment.

Ndlovu is a free agent after his last club Bloemfontein Celtic handed him his clearance at the end of the last season.

“I am training on my own to keep fit and I have been working hard,” he said yesterday. “I know things did not work the way I was hoping to at Celtic, but I will hang in there and wait for the next challenge.”

He said he has not lost hope in playing professional football again, even though he arrived with much fanfare in Mangaung but did not get as much game time as he had hoped.

“I had a good relationship with my coach Owen, we worked along well, but I don’t know what went wrong. I am prepared to work and find a team that will utilise my talent,” he said.

Ndlovu (30) left Moroka Swallows for Celtic last season after his contract expired. Swallows had a one-year option on his renewal; they opted to offer him a two-year extension as a sign of their appreciation for his contribution to the club.

But he chose to join Celtic. Ndlovu banged 20 goals in 30 appearances for Dynamos four seasons ago. He has since struggled to regain his form.

He was recalled by Sundowns at the end of the season and despite limited game time, he still managed to score 10 goals in 17 appearances.

“This is the game of football: you win some, you lose some. You are judged by your last result.

“I won’t blame people. I played my part. Now I am focusing on finding a new club.

“I have no regrets so far …” he added. — SuperSportzone
