Kaizer Chiefs’ say that new signing, Andriamirado ‘Dax’ Andrianarimanana, has provisionally been cleared to play for the club by FIFA’s Players’ Status Committee.
The Siya crew reported recently that the 27-year-old from Madagascar was expected to get his clearance finalised during the international break following a move from Fosa Juniors in his home country, and he could now line up for the club against Cape Town City this weekend.
A statement on Chiefs’ official website read, “The delay in the player’s registration follows a complaint laid by Dax’s former club Fosa Juniors FC wherein they claimed that they had not been approached by Kaizer Chiefs for the player’s signature because he was still contracted to them.”
The club’s football manager, Bobby Motaung, said, “We feel vindicated and are happy the matter has been resolved. What’s important for us is that the player can now focus on his football and doing well for us.”
Chiefs also confirmed that the midfielder will wear the number six jersey for the Amakhosi.
