Mamelodi Sundowns

Honoured! ‘I Respect Him’

As reported back home in Zimbabwe, Mamelodi Sundowns official Peter Ndlovu has pleaded with the football authorities to give Sunday Chidzambwa a befitting send-off.

Chidzambwa recently announced his retirement from coaching, following a career that spanned over 20 years.

In South Africa, the 67-year-old mentor coached Bush Bucks, Black Leopards and Free State Stars at some point in his career.

Chidzambwa had different spells with the Zimbabwe national team, while he previously also coached Dynamos.

Ndlovu – the team manager of Sundowns – has appealed to the authorities in Zimbabwe to honour Chidzambwa by building a statue of the player at the Rufaro Stadium, as reported by NewsDay Sport.

“I became what I am because of that man (Chidzambwa) made me believe that I can do it. I respect him and everyone respects you for being the one coach to have achieved big for this country in football circles, but he still remained down to earth. At his age, I respect that he has always listened to advice from players coming off age to better himself and that’s why he is the best coach because he listened,” the Downs official has been quoted by the publication.

“At least he must be honoured with a statue at Rufaro Stadium and it would be a shame for his legacy to go down the drain. We will have people to lobby for that, but we must by all means try and celebrate our own legends while they are still alive,” said Ndlovu, as NewsDay reports.
