Football Legend Peter Ndlovu has in an emotional interview with Newsday said he became what he is because of former Warriors Coach Sunday Chidzambga/Chidzambwa who recently announced his retirement from coaching football.
The former English Premiership league champion star said local football authorities were supposed to put a statue of Chidzambga Rufaro Stadium as an honour to Marimo for his contribution to local football. Ndlovu said:
I became what I am because of that man (Chidzambwa) made me believe that I can do it,” the former English Premier League star said.I respect him and everyone respects you for being the one coach to have achieved big for this country in football circles, but he still remained down to earth. At his age, I respect that he has always listened to advice from players coming off age to better himself and that’s why he is the best coach because he listened.
At least he must be honoured with a statue at Rufaro Stadium and it would be a shame for his legacy to go down the drain. We will have people to lobby for that, but we must by all means try and celebrate our own legends while they are still alive
Chidzambwa led the Warriors to their first-ever AFCON in 2004 and to the very last one so far in 2019.
