Warriors legend Peter Ndlovu has expressed his disappointment with Warriors team manager Wellington Mpandare’s claims that he was blocking Khama Billiat from joining the Warriors camp.
Ndlovu jetted in yesterday with Billiat to show the Warriors technical team that the Sundowns forward was indeed injured and also presented his medical records.
Billiat has not played for Sundowns since the 17th of May due to an ankle injury
“I am a Zimbabwean, I love Zimbabwe and I will never let my country down even for a split second and I feel sorry for those who want to smear me with mud,” Ndlovu told the Herald
“I respect the ZIFA president, Chiyangwa, I respect the coach who was there before and I respect the current coach .
“It is, however, very unfair for people to question my loyalty.
“I served this country very well and many times I would leave England after playing a match to come and play another game here straight from the aeroplane. People should understand that football is now scientific and the current crop of players can no longer do it.
“I do not make decisions for Sundowns, but Billiat was injured on the ankle and he has been out. He still needs three to four weeks to recover. I wish there was a miracle that can be done for him to play on Sunday added Ndlovu.
Ndlovu said he would not hold a grudge against Mpandare but felt the Warriors team manager had failed to handle the situation.
“He is my brother and whatever I am saying I am not taking it personal, but I am telling him. He must use a good tone and he must be humble and professional and this must be on record said Ndlovu.
Sundowns have also expressed their anger at Mpandare’s claims.
Meanwhile, Billiat will now return to South Africa to complete his rehabilitation.
