Peter Ndlovu, Mamelodi Sundowns’ unsung hero, says Cuthbert Malajila
Former Warriors striker Cuthbert Malajila has said Peter “Nsukuzonke” Ndlovu is Mamelodi Sundowns’ unsung hero following the club’s continued successes over the years.
Malajila believes the former Warriors skipper and Sundowns’ prolific striker, now the club’s manager, is playing a key role in helping the Pretoria based side achieve success.
However, the ex-Highlanders and Dynamos gunmen feels Ndlovu’s contribution at the club is being ‘underrated’ with much credit being given to the Tshwane giants’ coaches.
He told FARPost: “I was there. I learnt a lot. He [Peter Ndlovu] was and is always there to extend a warm helping hand, especially to new players.
“He helped a number of players settle in. It’s not a secret that there is intense competition at the club. One has to fight hard to be in the team.
“Peter’s work speaks for itself. Ask any current or former Sundowns player. He has been so smooth and he has remained grounded.
“He is very good at what he does. I think he is one of the unsung heros in the team at the moment.
“The team is moving well and it’s a good reflection of the work that is being put it by everyone.”
Nsukuzonke is part of Rulani Mokwena’s led Sundowns technical team as the manager while his fellow countrymen and former teammate Esrom Nyandoro is the scout.
Ndlovu was appointed Sundowns team manager back in July 2013 when the former CAF Champions League winners where still under the guidance of Pitso Mosimane.
His managerial era has seenw Downs winning several championship titles and domestic league cups as well as continental trophies.
