Zimbabwean legend Madinda Ndlovu knows better than most how football can deliver highs and lows.
Last December his brother Adam died in a road traffic accident when he was travelling for a match pitting Highlanders legends against a Victoria Falls team.
Ndlovu revealed he still tries to communicate with Adam in spirit and perhaps it was in part his sense that his brother is still there for him that has helped Ndlovu steer Mochudi Centre Chiefs to the Botswana league title in his first year in charge.
"Adam's death is a great loss, I think he would have made a very good coach," Ndlovu told BBC Sport.
