Ndlovu: Vonk Congratulated Me

South African striker Dino Ndlovu says he was happy with his performance for Maccabi Haifa in their first Europa League game, adding that Hans Vonk came over to congratulate him at the end.

Ndlovu, who is still on the way to achieving full fitness following a lengthy lay-off, came on for 20 minutes in the 1-0 defeat to AZ Alkmaar, and says that he felt he changed the game for his side.

Meanwhile, he added that former Ajax Cape Town man, Vonk, who is now the football manager at AZ, approached him after the game to wish him well.

Speaking to the Siya crew Ndlovu said“I thought I did really well when I came on last night and Hans Vonk even came up to congratulate me at the end of the game and wished me the best of luck. Even though we lost I came on from the bench and changed the game, I created three chances for us but the other striker couldn’t convert.

“I was really happy with how things went from a personal point of view, even though we didn’t win. I’m feeling fitter than ever, I scored on my first start back from injury and I’m playing well.”

The Bafana Bafana man will be hoping that his good performance will see him granted a starting position when his side take on Maccabi Tel Aviv on Monday night.
