Peter Ndlovu ruined my football career: English player

11 years ago | 55314 Views
A FORMER English Premier League star has told how Peter Ndlovu "ruined" his career after he "ripped him to shreds" during a league meeting between Blackburn Rovers and the former Zimbabwe captain’s Coventry City.

Andy Morrison had just broken into the first team squad which was chasing the championship in 1994 under manager Kenny Dalglish when he came across the former Highlanders winger, nicknamed ‘the Flying Elephant’ by the British press.

"I was at Blackburn, had broken into the first-team squad and was in the plans of the manager, Kenny Dalglish. But I got ripped to shreds by Peter Ndlovu of Coventry," Morrison told the Sunday Times.

In an interview to launch his new book, ‘The Good, the Mad and the Ugly’, Morrison was asked who was the best player he came up against.

"People come up with the biggest name they played against but I would rather talk about who gave me the hardest time," he said. "Blackburn still had a chance to win the title and were pushing for an equaliser. Time and again I was left one-on-one with Ndlovu and he tore me to pieces. He beat me on the inside and the outside until I was put out of my misery after 80 minutes.

"I came across him a few years later and told him that he had ruined my career. He, of course, had no idea what I was talking about."

That nightmarish encounter with Ndlovu would be one of just four games the centre-half played for Blackburn, who won the league title a year later. By then, Morrison had been shipped to Blackpool in the lower division. He later had stints with Huddersfield, Manchester City and Crystal Palace.

I can’t thank you enough Email: ekakaspelltemple at for all that you have done for me. About a year ago I my partner had a misunderstanding that lead to break up, we had both made BIG mistakes in our relationship. He ended up moving away from me to pursue a new life. I knew in my heart that he would be the only one to make me happy. I was relieved when I found your site and what you had to offer. I requested 3 to 4 day casting of the reunite us love spell and within 4days Denny company had relocated him back to our hometown where I still lived. We immediately reconnected and move in with each other i am so happy that i found you and i was all patient to following your order thank you Dr Ekaka.
