Former Premier League player Peter Ndlovu has claimed that he can’t afford to pay the £568 in child support for two of his kids because he has 11 others.

The former Zimbabwean player played for several Premier League clubs including Sheffield United, Huddersfield and Birmingham but is now involved in a legal battle with the mother of his children.

The 49-year-old has claimed that he is unable to pay £568 in child maintenance fees a month even though the amount was reduced from £1,420 by the judge.

Ndlovu claimed that he did not know that the children even existed.

‘I’m obliged to contribute and see to the maintenance needs of all 13 of my children.’ he told the court.

‘I earn a monthly salary that is utilised for my own living expenses, needs, necessities, and liabilities as well as to contribute to the dependents’ expenses and other obligations.

‘As a result of these encounters, two minor children were born between the respondent and me.

‘I was not informed by the respondent about the pregnancies or the subsequent births of our children.

‘The last I heard of the children was when she instituted maintenance proceedings against me in 2016.’

Ndlovu was eager to stress that he cannot afford to pay the requested child maintenance fees.

He said: ‘There is no communication between the respondent and me. We share no relationship and there is no contact between us.

‘I cannot simply afford a deduction of R29,845 per month from my salary.’
