JOHANNESBURG – Former Mpumalanga Black Aces chairman George Morfou has volunteered to help Zimbabwean striker Tendai Ndoro after concerns about his health.
Shocking images of a frail-looking Ndoro have emerged, sparking concerns over his seemingly dramatic weight loss.
George and his brother Mario were responsible for introducing the 36-year-old striker to the Premier Soccer League (PSL) when they signed him from Chicken Inn.
“Yeah, I’ve seen the photos and they look very, very disturbing to be honest,” Morfou told Kickoff.com.
“He really looks like he’s struggling and I feel for the boy. I hope he gets over everything he’s been through. I really don’t know why when he’s playing football what really happens with the boy. ‘man. Let’s hope he can detach from it.
“We took him to South Africa, yes he first played for the Black Aces before moving to Pirates. We had him for a few years and he was an integral part of the club.
“He took very good care of us and you know he was part of the family. To be honest, when I saw those pictures I was a little worried.
“You know what I loved about him, he was always listening, he was always asking if he ever knew. He sought advice from people in the office, especially me and Mario as co-chairs.
“As for life skills, he was talking to his coaches, he was always willing to learn.
“When it comes to his finances, we’ve never worried about him having a problem. When he moved to Pirates he was fine. So I don’t really know what’s going on to be honest.
“I will definitely contact him, I have his details. I tried to call him about last week, I think it was three days ago when you uploaded the photos.
“I tried to call him, couldn’t reach him but I’ll try to call him again to see if everything is well or if he needs any help.”
