AmaZulu Wait On Lawyers Update Regarding MTN8 Interdict

AmaZulu Attempt To Interdict Start Of The MTN8 In Court

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 07, 2018 12:22 PM

AmaZulu are waiting for an update from their legal team regarding the club's attempts to interdict the start of this year's MTN8 competition. 

The KwaZulu-Natal outfit is trying to prohibit the start of the MTN8 by way of a court of law after learning that they would not be playing in this year’s prestigious competition, despite the club finishing the season in the top eight.

Usuthu were left out of the competition following the Tendai Ndoro and Ajax Cape Town saga where points were re-awarded.

Following a decision in May from which Ajax forfeited points and subsequently relegated to the NFD, AmaZulu lost their place in the top eight of the PSL log standings after SuperSport United were awarded three of the nine points docked from the Urban Warriors. 

With AmaZulu unhappy about missing out on playing in the MTN8, the Durban-based side is trying to interdict the start of the competition at the South Gauteng High Court.

Speaking to the Siya crew, AmaZulu’s team manager, Qedi Dlamini said the club is waiting on their legal team to provide an update on the matter.

“I am not there (Gauteng) right now so I wouldn’t know the latest regarding the matter. It’s only our lawyers that are there. All I know is that the matter had been scheduled to be heard from 10h00 today,” said Dlamini. 

Meanwhile, the PSL has already confirmed the fixtures for this year’s MTN8 competition which is scheduled to get underway this weekend.

As confirmed by the league, Mamelodi Sundowns will face Golden Arrows at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on August 11, while Kaizer Chiefs is set to face Free State Stars at FNB Stadium on the same day and Orlando Pirates is scheduled to come up against SuperSport United at the Orlando Stadium in the last match of the day.  

Maritzburg United is set to host Cape Town City at the Harry Gwala Stadium on August 12 in the last match of the quarter-finals.

The sin that Ajax did was their 3-0 win over OP. Should OP would have won that match, We would be singing another tune now and Ajax would be playing in PSL

What if those who sold their status to AmZulu want their status back? And they go back to NFD. Anything is possible these days.
