Released PSL player in strange U-turn

Premiership understands Black Leopards have welcomed back one of the players they released at the start of the transfer window.

Goalkeeper King Ndlovu is reportedly back with Leopards after he stopped training with the team at the end of December together with the likes of Siyabonga Zulu and Cuthbert Malajila.

Despite playing a total of 25 matches last season, this campaign Ndlovu has not played a single game for Lidoda Duvha.

"Mhh... he's back," a close source tells

"No, he was supposed to go... but they said he must come back, that's all. He stopped training with the team but now they told him to come back to work.

"It seems the [former] coach [Luc Eymael] is the one who had a problem with the boy you see, but no one knows why. But they kept it on a low profile because many people don't know he left.

"Malajila is no longer training with the team, and Siyabonga Zulu. We last saw them before the transfer window."

Leopards officials including team manager Elijah Mulaudzi and general manager Chief Thidiela refused to comment on the matter.
