FIFA Rules Halt PSL’s Manyama Interest

FIFA Rules Halt PSL’s Manyama Interest

A host of clubs in the Premier Soccer League were believed to be considering a move for Lebogang Manyama until they were halted by FIFA’s player registration rules.
 
 
Manyama completed a big-money move to Konyaspor in Turkey last year after a stellar campaign for Cape Town City in 2016/17, with the 27-year-old finishing the season with a host of individual awards.
 
Now, with only three starts to his name in all competitions for Konyaspor, the Siya crew had been informed that there had been some interest regarding bringing him back to the Absa Premiership, although that will definitely not be happening.
 
While players are allowed to be registered for three different clubs over the space of a season, they can only play for two of them. And with Manyama having already played for City and Konyaspor in 2017/18, his options have been cut short.
 
FIFA’s rulebook states as follows:
 
“Players may be registered with a maximum of three clubs during one season. During this period, the player is only eligible to play official matches for two clubs. As an exception to this rule, a player moving between two clubs belonging to associations with overlapping seasons (i.e. start of the season in summer/autumn as opposed to winter/spring) may be eligible to play in official matches for a third club during the relevant season, provided he has fully complied with his contractual obligations towards his previous clubs.”
 
Given that he’s already played for them, the club capable of signing Manyama in this window would be the Citizens, although that move seems improbable having already made signings to replace him.

@Ambzo You make excellent points........Our current crop of recycled / road-warrior overseas coaches are not moving our game forward. We are capable of teaching our players all they need and more. It is also vital to teach our players MENTAL STRENGTH. They must know that if they go overseas, success will not come overnight AND that there will be no safety net. No juicy offers from a local club after only 3 months abroad!

@khaydoman if the 3 clubs are in different countries and their seasons are not the same (August-May) then the rule doesn't apply. Probably Saudi Arabia uses a different calendar.

What about Ndoro? He played for Pirates and went over seas in August now he's playing for Ajax. does this mean he failed to play even a single match on his overseas club?

It is becoming a norm for South African players to fail in Europe, maybe the guys miss their moms a lot I don't know : Mashamaite and Masango did not stay long as well. I will say they're cowards

There is a very stupid thing the we south Africans always say and to my disappointment even ex footballers or the so called football pundits will continue to say it ,you hear people say our players "must go overseas to learn " and when they don't get game time we complain why? A student must sit down to watch and learn ,unlike other countries when they sent their players abroad is for them to be the ambassadors of their brand football, now here is the irony when foreign coaches come we complain saying that their ruining our football but we encourage our players to go overseas to be coached by the very coaches we speak ill of . We don't have to depend on Europeans to teach or develop our players we must do it ourselves no wonder our players fail abroad and national team in the state that is in now,we don't have a football culture and don't even tell me about the stupid dribbling thing I see our players do that's not a football.

First of all our players don't do research about a country they will be playing and they just settle for anything as long it's overseas. I had this boy complaining about settling in and learn the culture of the city and club I don't think that should be a problem... He must just work hard there to make a mark fly our flag high

Anada one bites the dust. Dis cow is coming back to the PSL, jst like Patosi, Rantie and the like. PSL players fail big. time overseas. Only Fish, Radebe, Masinga, Donald Khuse, McCarthy and few others were successful. Diz softies r a disgrace to our football
