Black Mambas technical director Madinda Ndlovu has left the police side following withdrawal of club sponsors, Twalumba Holdings.
Ndlovu yesterday told NewsDay Sport he had left Black Mambas after he was withdrawn from the club by Twalumba, who had seconded him to Warumwa Warumwa.
The former Warriors and Highlanders mentor said Twalumba had communicated to him their withdrawal from Mambas and his subsequent pulling out from the struggling police side.
“They (Twalumba) have withdrawn me from Black Mambas. They are the ones who seconded me to Mambas. They have since communicated to me their withdrawal from the club and I will hear from them concerning the next move,” Ndlovu said.
The charismatic coach rubbished media reports in Botswana that linked him to FC Platinum coach Rahman Gumbo’s former club Mochudi Centre Chiefs, but said he was a football person and he was free to take on something that would make him happy.
“I left Black Mambas and that is why I am here in Bulawayo. I am a football person and I will take on anything available that will make me happy, be it administration or technical work,” Ndlovu said.
Twalumba, through director Nkululeko Sibanda, last year signed a $600 000 sponsorship agreement with Black Mambas but the deal has reportedly collapsed.
The fate of players that were loaned to Black Mambas from Twalumba’s Northern Region Division One side Highfield United who included iconic Peter Ndlovu, remains unknown. Peter has not made his decision about whether he will honour his contract or quit.
However, Madinda on Thursday said players were also withdrawn.
“I have been withdrawn together with the players that were loaned to Black Mambas,” Ndlovu said.
