Peter Ndlovu, Zimbabwe’s legendary former soccer star, has spoken out in support of Zimbabwe Cricket head coach, Heath Streak. The Chevron’s coach was accused by Zimbabwe Cricket chairperson Tawengwa Mukuhlani of making racially motivated decisions during the Cricket World Cup Qualifiers.
Peter says he supports Streak in the face of people trying to soil his name:
“I just want to appreciate you because you always have been professional when you were playing for Zimbabwe and you kept that even as coach. I really support what you have just said in terms of people trying to mess your name. I support you all the way. You never minced your words. The skin colour is not what is important but togetherness is what you have just expressed, that’s why you even went on to speak in vernacular. So, it is a shame that people will always want to divide people. I wish you to stay on as our coach. We just have to support you,”
