Coventry City issues statement on Peter Ndlovu

Coventry City Football Club is saddened to hear of a tragic road accident in Zimbabwe that has left former striker Peter Ndlovu in a critical condition and claimed the life of his brother Adam.

It has been reported that both were travelling from an away match between Chicken Inn FC and a local side when Ndlovu's car suffered a tyre blow-out which caused the car to veer off the road 20km outside Victoria Falls.

Ndlovu achieved iconic status during his six-years with the Sky Blues where he netted 39 goals in 176 appearances for the club.
