- Battling injuries, advanced age and a tainted name, Ndoro’s career is starring down the barrel of a gun
SOUTH African Premiership football side Highlands Park have cut ties with Zimbabwe striker Tendai Ndoro, four-months before his one-year contract comes to an end.
Ndoro signed for the Highlands Park in September 2018 on a free transfer after he was released by Ajax Cape Town at the end of the 2017/18 season.
He signed a one-year contract with an option to renew for another year but it appears Highlands Park are not interested in seeing out his contract or negotiating for an extension.
“Highlands Park confirms the amicable parting of ways with Tendai Ndoro following a meeting between both parties late on Tuesday. The club wishes him well and is thankful for his contribution in the team as well as the professionalism displayed during his time with us,”the club said in a statement.
South African media reported that while the parting of ways
was mutual, the move comes hot on the heels of the player’s salary being cut in March.
The 35-year-old former Chicken Inn, Mpumalanga Black Aces and Orlando Pirates forward will have to mount a sensational comeback to get his career back on the rails.
Also working against him is a tainted past after he appeared for three clubs – Orlando Pirates, Al Faisaly, and Ajax Cape Town, in the 2017–18 season in breach of FIFA regulations.
As a result, Ajax Cape Town had to forfeit the three league games he had appeared in for them, resulting in their relegation from the South African Premier League.
