Harare - Former Gaborone United coach, Madinda Ndlovu, who collapsed in Gaborone while conducting a training session last month is recovering well at home, a family source has said.

Ndlovu, who for the better part of this year was managing his boyhood team Highlanders in Bulawayo, was taken to hospital in Gaborone after he collapsed while instructing his team.

He had joined the club in August.

His condition was initially critical but after specialist treatment in the Botswana capital, he got better and was subsequently repatriated back home.

“Madinda (Ndlovu) is recovering well at home. He is doing his rehabilitation exercises and he is looking quiet jovial. Its only that he had been critical otherwise I can safely say he is on the way to recovery,” said the source who declined to be named.

“He is with the family in Bulawayo right now and the football community in Zimbabwe as well as Gaborone United have been incredibly supportive. They see to it that the legend gets everything which is required by the former gaffer.

“They are footing the medical bills and buying utilities for him to keep up. I would like, on behalf of the Ndlovu family, to thank them all for not abandoning Madinda in his hour of need.”

Ndlovu shot to fame as one of three blood brothers who played in the same Highlanders team in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

He lined up together with his late brother Adam as well as current Mamelodi Sundowns manager Peter for Highlanders in the 1990s.

He played for the Zimbabwe national team and won a lot of individual and team accolades in a successful playing career.

He ventured into coaching around 2006 and has since won three league titles in Botswana.

He hopes to come back strong from the setback and retake the reigns at Gaborone United.
