Dino Ndlovu biography
South Africa continues to score well as a nation in international sports, thanks to dedicated professional players such as Dino. His rags to riches struggles have shaped him to become a player that any team can rely on for great performance as evidenced by his career accomplishments.
Early life and qualifications
The footballer was born in Jouberton close to Klerksdorp. It is during his mid-teen years that Dino immersed himself in football, playing in the streets. His impressive plays would later earn him a chance to enrol in the Academy of Excellence when he was 16 years old. Sadly, he decided to turn down this lucrative opportunity so as not to leave his mother alone.
Ndlovu recounts sleeping at a train station bathroom for three days in a row. He had traveled to Johannesburg purposely to take part in Platinum Stars football trials. His impressive show of skills compelled the team to sign a contract with him. However, 2011 was not a good year for Dino given that Platinum Stars failed to renew his contract because his new source of income started destructing him.
At the time when the contract was not renewed, the young player had no alternative sources of income to support himself and his pregnant wife, Felicia Ndlovu. Today, the couple is blessed with two kids, Oratiliwe Fatima Ndlovu, born on 21st August, and Fidelia Ndlovu who was born on 16th August 2018. However, the couple officially became man and wife just recently in 2018. The private wedding took place in Spain.
Ndlovu's mother is South African, while his dad was Mozambican. Dino Ndlovu's father died in 2011 from a heart attack.
