Ndlovu family decide on burial spot

Former Highlanders and Warriors striker Adam “Adamski” Ndlovu will be buried at the Lady Stanley cemetery on Saturday.

Ndlovu passed away in a car accident last weekend. On Friday his body will be taken to two stadiums.

First Barbourfields Stadium where he made his name while playing for Highlanders and then Luveve where he made his name as an upcoming coach at Chicken Inn, who he led to a third-placed finish in the recently concluded season.

Ndlovu was one of three trainers in the running for the division’s coach of the year, together with Highlanders’ Kelvin Kaindu and the eventual winner Callisto Pasuwa of Dynamos.

Chicken Inn chairman Lifa Ncube told Supersport.com that they want to honour Ndlovu in a special way.

“He made the team play like true champions and it wasn’t by luck or chance that we finished third. Everyone at the club is finding it tough to come to terms with what has happened. We have really lost a father to the players. He was more than just a coach to the players. He was a father and a guardian to them,” Ncube said.

Representatives at the funeral will include officials from Zifa, the Premier Soccer League, Highlanders and Chicken Inn.
