Tendai Ndoro joins Saudi club

HARARE - Zimbabwe international forward Tendai Ndoro is on his way to Saudi Arabian club Al Faisaly after South African Absa Premiership giants Orlando Pirates agreed to sell the player.

Ndoro, who was in his third year at the Sea Robbers, missed last night’s clash against Baroka FC to undergo a medical with Al Faisaly ahead of the move.

“Striker Tendai Ndoro will miss the Absa Premiership clash against Baroka FC tonight (last night),” the Ghosts said in a statement.

“The club can confirm that it has reached an agreement for the sale of the Zimbabwean international to Al Faisaly Football Club. Ndoro is due to undergo a medical in Saudi Arabia before the deal is finalised.”

Ndoro scored 13 goals in 34 appearances during last year’s campaign where the Ghosts had one of their worst season finishing outside the top eight for the first time since the inception of the Premier Soccer League 20 years ago.

The Zimbabwe international joined the Sea Robbers from the defunct Mpumalanga Black Aces in July 2015 and has been poised to play a leading role for the club this season alongside Thamsanqa Gabuza.

The move, however, comes as a shock considering that the Pirates’ faithful had expected Ndoro, who was the team’s top scorer the previous season, to continue to lead the club’s attack following the arrival of new coach Milutin “Michu” Sredejovic.

Al Faisaly finished ninth in the top flight last season in Saudi Arabia.
