Ndo interview in match programme on Sunday

As we count down to the FAI Ford Cup semi-final a special commemorative programme has been together with one of the highlights being an interview with Joseph Ndo.
 
In exclusive extracts, Ndo discusses his future after recently notching his 100th league appearance for the club in a long career that has included featuring in two World Cups with Cameroon.
 
Despite his advancing years Ndo is still enjoying his football and describes Sligo as "the best place" for him. 
 
"When it comes to next year and me continuing to play I never make any decision and only God can show me the way. I couldn't say when the time will arrive for me to make that decision but I do feel that Sligo is the best place for me. We will just have to see how things go and I know God will show me the way as always. I want to continue playing for as long as I can and know that when the time comes from me to stop then I will know when that time is."
 
Ndo also speaks about a number of players that return to The Showgrounds having departed the club. He makes a unique appeal to Sligo Rovers supporters to give a warm welcome to those players who once wore the Bit o' Red. 
 
He said: "I want to tell all the fans about something that I have seen happen in the Showgrounds whenever we play Shamrock Rovers and that is the booing of Gary McCabe. And also in the last game Quiggs was booed whenever he was on the ball. I don't believe that that is right or fair and for me one thing that always made Sligo Rovers different to any other club was that the supporters never forgot people who had helped the club acheive things no matter where they ended up.
 
"Gary scored the winning penalty for us in the Aviva and Quiggs and Jason helped us to win the League last season. We should always be grateful to players like these and every time that they are back here give them a very warm welcome and say thank you for what you have done for Sligo Rovers, thank you but you are going to lose today.
 
"Sligo Rovers is a special club and the supporters are special and these players have all brought something to the club at different times and helped us to win trophies and when they have left they have provided other players with the opportunity to come here and help the club achieve.
 
"Fans need to appreciate the moments that we achieved with these players and don't have to forget where we came from, we can't take things for granted. People have to realise that the football business is unlike any other, when your contract is up there are negotiations and then the family side for players to consider before they make any decision and decide to sign back or go somewhere else. Sligo Rovers is a great club and all of us need to recognise what those players achieved with us and give them a warm welcome and not copy the bad behaviour of other supporters. Gary McCabe excited a lot of people when he played here and it hurts me to hear him being booed, he doesn't deserve that."
