PRETORIA — Mamelodi Sundowns are reportedly keen to rope in Warriors legend Peter Ndlovu as a development coach.
Ndlovu, a former player at the Chloorkop, is currently the Zimbabwe national team second assistant coach. While Ndlovu has denied any links to Sundowns, sources close to the player said he has been approached by the club.
“They (Sundowns) have contacted him and he has agreed,” the source said.
“They want him to be their junior coach and Peter is thrilled at the job. But a deal has not yet been struck and Peter just agreed terms, but he has not signed anything. From the looks of things it won’t be long before he puts pen to paper.”
Ndlovu has been Warriors assistant coach since last year during Rahman Gumbo’s tenure and he is now working under German coach Klaus-Dieter Pagels.
Under Zimbabwean football structures, he is the current Under-23 coach. While Ndlovu has not taken charge of any team on his own to assert his credentials as a tactical genius, working as Sundowns juniors coach would not put him under the spotlight as the job is not result-oriented.
