CAPE TOWN – He has been a controversial figure since returning to South African football, but now Tendai Ndoro is back.

The 33-year-old Zimbabwean striker has signed a one-year deal with Highlands Park.

The Lions of the North made the announcement on their Twitter account on Wednesday.

“PLAYER SIGNING! Highlands Park FC is excited to announce the signing of seasoned striker, Tendai Ndoro. Ndoro is joining the team on a one year deal, he’s been training with the team for the past couple of weeks and has impressed the technical team led by Owen Da Gama!”

Former Orlando Pirates marksman Ndoro hit the headlines last season after being snapped up by Ajax Cape Town following a nightmare time at Al Faisaly in Saudi Arabia.

But it turned out that he had played for three clubs in one season – Pirates, Al Faisaly and Ajax – which was in breach of Fifa rules.

It led to the Urban Warriors being docked points and ultimately being relegated from the Premiership to the First Division following a long-running saga.

But now he will try to make a fresh start with Da Gama’s confident Highlands Park, who lost their first league game of the season against Free State Stars last week.

They are currently in eighth position on the log with seven points after one defeat, four draws and a win from six games.

Ndoro has been training with Highlands Park for a few weeks, and will hope to make his debut in their next match against Kaizer Chiefs next Tuesday at Makhulong Stadium in Tembisa (7.30pm kickoff).
