Since joining from Maritzburg United in 2019, Ndlovu has failed to make much of an impression at Pirates, where he has struggled for game time: having made just five appearances for the Buccaneers this season.

Manqana told Soccer Laduma he could feel for Ndlovu, and suggested a fresh start elsewhere would be a good idea.

“It’s painful to see what is happening to Sphesihle Ndlovu, things in Gauteng can be tough and mentally it can really affect you.

“For me, I think he should ask for loan move, to restart his career, he is very talented and should be playing in the Bafana Bafana setup because at his best he can play anywhere.

“I can’t really say he can go back to Maritzburg United because mentally, he won’t be effective, if he gets a loan, I would suggest that he find new club for fresh start,” said Manqana.
