Kaizer Chiefs have updated the football fraternity on the appeal of their two-window transfer ban.
Chiefs were banned by FIFA from making any new signings for two windows after they were found guilty of signing Andriamirado Andrianarimanana while at the time, the player already had a contract set in place with Fosa Juniors in Madagascar.
However, Amakhosi appealed the ban before the Court of Arbitration for Sport on September 09 but more than two weeks later, the club is still awaiting a decision.
“Update: We would like to reiterate that the Club is still waiting for the outcome of the FIFA ban appeal case lodged and heard by CAS on 9 September. We will communicate when we receive the outcome,” Chiefs stated on their official Twitter account.
But Could Chiefs be feeling the pressure of the transfer window, especially since their league rivals have already made a number of new signings?
Mamelodi Sundowns have so far announced the signings of Lesedi Kapinga, George Maluleka, Peter Shalulile and Mothobi Mvala, while Orlando Pirates have already bolstered with Thulani Hlatshwayo, Deon Hotto, Collins Makgaka and Terrence Dzvukamanja.
With the transfer window in full swing, Chiefs could miss out on a number of signings, as they are currently eyeing the likes of Sifiso Hlanti, Buhle Mkhwanazi, Thabang Monare and Cole Alexander.
