Phiri confirms new deal for Ndebele

As reported earlier by Supersport.com, the Premier Soccer League (PSL) of Zimbabwe has extended their CEO’s contract.

The contract for CEO Kennedy Ndebele expired on December 31, but he was given the mandate to continue working until the negotiations were finished.

Now the Bulawayo-based football administrator has been given a new three-year contract. The PSL chairman Twine Phiri confirmed that Ndebele will continue to run things at the Harare PSL office.

He said since his first appointment in 2010, Ndebele has done very well and it was just fitting to give him another contract.

“He will continue to be the PSL CEO for the next three years. We though we need continuation at the organisation and Mr Ndebele has done a great job. There was no reason why we should have been looking somewhere else while we have the man with us,” Phiri said.

Ndebele, who is a former Highlanders chairman, is the one who has made sure that the sponsors remain happy and they have promised to continue working with the league.

“We need these sponsors to run the league properly and professionally, and if someone can do that then we have to keep that person and Mr Ndebele has shown that he is capable of doing that,” Phiri added.
