Dino Ndlovu’s Salary, Net Worth Sources and the Cars He Splurges On

Dino Ndlovu has a current market value of €525,000 and his annual salary is believed to be running in millions of euros but the figure is yet to be made public. He ranks among the highest-paid South African footballers. The Klerksdorp-born center-forward has, through his decades-long successful career in football, accumulated a net worth estimated between $2 and $8 million (over R29.6 – R74.2 million). Dino Ndlovu started playing football in his teens and today, he has professionally played for over 9 football clubs. He joined the Turkish club, Kocaelispor, on July 1st, 2021, penning a lucrative contract in the process, which will last until June 30th, 2022.

What Is Dino Ndlovu’s Current Salary?

Dino Ndlovu has spent the majority of his professional career playing for teams overseas. As a result, he has earned hefty salaries throughout his career and thus, considered one of South Africa’s highest-earning football players. He joined Kocealispor in June 2021 and details of his contract have been kept secret. As such, it’s still unknown how much the ace striker will be pocketing as annual salary in his new club.

While playing for the PSL franchise SuperSport United in the year 2014, Dino Ndlovu was sought after by Orlando Pirates. The club was very eager to sign the center-forward, unfortunately, his salary demands scared them away. With the Orlando Pirates not willing to take on Dino Ndlovu’s salary at the time, citing that he was out of their league, he moved to Israeli club, Maccabi Haifa on a transfer deal worth €740,000. This showed that the striker was receiving hefty paychecks as salaries during his stint at SuperSport United.

Besides the aforementioned clubs, Dino Ndlovu has played for other football clubs overseas, including Bnei Yehuda, Anorthosis Famagusta, Qarabag, and Zhejiang Greentown. The salaries he earned at the various clubs are unavailable at the moment. However, it is believed that the earnings have hugely contributed to his financial status which has afforded him the luxury lifestyle he is leading today.

How Much is The Kocaelispor Striker Worth?

Dino Ndlovu’s net worth is estimated within the range of $2 to $8 million (over R29.6 – R74.2 million). The footballer has been rewarded greatly for his bravery to travel on the road less ventured by many PSL players. Since 2011, he has been playing for clubs outside of the Premier Soccer League. This has helped him build the staggering net worth he presently sits on. He began his career playing for the youth teams of diverse clubs such as OI Celtic, Dona Young Stars, Digagabi FC, Motherwell FC, and Platinum Stars.

The renowned South African forward kicked off his pro career at Mamelodi Sundowns during the 2009/2010 season. He eventually developed his playing techniques and became a competitive footballer who can play so well as a center-forward, right-winger, and left-winger. Thus, Ndlovu is a player any team can depend on for the best performances. Little wonder why the striker was signed by Maccabi Haifa on a transfer deal worth €740,000 in 2012. Later on in his career, he signed a contract with Zhejiang Greentown reportedly worth €650,000. While at the club in December 2018, following his goalscoring spree, Dino Ndlovu reached his highest market value of €1.20 million. He is currently valued at €525,000 in the transfer market.

Additionally, he has negotiated some transfer deals as a free agent on some occasions which also account for his net worth. In the 2015/2016 season, he joined Anorthosis as a free agent, and following the expiration of his contract with Zhejiang Greentown on April 19th, 2021, he subsequently joined Kocealispor as a free agent. Furthermore, from 2012 to 2018, the striker played with the Bafana Bafana squad before retiring from representing his home country. He made 8 appearances with the national team and scored one goal. Prior to making his senior team debut on September 7th, 2012, Ndlovu played two games and scored 3 goals with the South Africa U23 team.

He also played two games as a member of the South Africa U20 team and in the process, earned a stipend for representing his home country. Although the talented sportsman once stated that he has been investing his money at home, it’s still uncertain the business he channels his money into. He has also revealed his plans to retire on a farm and has started working on achieving his goals. Regarding his endorsement deals, Ndlovu is not known to have worked as a brand ambassador for any brand. Perhaps, he might have signed a few sponsorship deals but decided to keep the details away from the media.

Football Franchises That Contributed to Dino Ndlovu’s Net Worth

Beyond any other endeavor that contributed to his net worth, Ndlovu’s stint in different football clubs contributes more to the fortune he controls.

Additionally, he played with the team in the Aserbaidschanischer Pokal competition in the 2017/2018 season. He further made appearances in 36 Premyer Liqa games, scoring fifteen goals. Also with the team, Dino Ndlovu became a two-time Azerbaijani League title winner. Qarabag clinched the Azerbaijani League title in the 2016/2017 season and equally in the 2017/2018 season. Following his exploits at the club, which offered him the opportunity to meet the Azeri president, Ilham Aliyev after scoring the away goal that ensured the team would play in Europe in the 2017/2018 season, Dino Ndlovu accumulated tremendous wealth while playing for the Azerbaijani champion.

He was believed to be earning an annual salary worth hundreds of thousands of euros. He scored 20 goals in 55 appearances for the franchise.
