FORMER Premier League star Peter Ndlovu has told a court he cannot afford a maintenance demand for two kids — because he is already shelling out for 11 more.
The Zimbabwe striker, who spent six top-flight seasons with Coventry City, said: “I have 13 children, including these.”
He said he had no contact with them, adding: “I was not informed by the respondent about the pregnancies or the subsequent births.”
Ndlovu, 49 — who also played for Birmingham, Huddersfield and Sheffield United — is manager of South African club Mamelodi Sundowns.
The mum wanted £1,420 a month.
But Johannesburg High Court ruled he should pay her £568 a month.
The ex-player insisted he had no contact with the two children in question, and no relationship with their mother since their conception.
He told the court: “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.
“There is no communication between the respondent and me. We share no relationship and there is no contact between us.”
