Ajax CEO: I Was Not Acknowledged…

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 06, 2018 01:49 PM

Ajax Cape Town CEO, Ari Efstathiou said that he was not acknowledged during the Premier Soccer League’s executive meeting. 

The league held their executive meeting yesterday, where they thereafter confirmed that they will be appealing Judge Denise Fischer’s ruling regarding Ajax Cape Town. 

Judge Fischer set aside Advocate William Mokhari’s award that saw Ajax being docked points from their Absa Premiership campaign for the ineligible fielding of Tendai Ndoro.

As a result, Ajax was reinstated into 15th position and the promotion/relegation play-off results are invalid.

The matter has since been referred back to FIFA, with the PSL confirming yesterday that they will be appealing the decision.

Following the executive committee meeting, the Siya crew contacted Ajax’s Efstathiou revealed to the crew that despite being at the PSL headquarters, he was not given a chance to address the committee or acknowledged and left after two hours.

“I requested to be given an opportunity to address the executive committee and waited at reception for two hours. I contacted the CEO through her personal assistant and I was told that I was not needed and could leave.

"I was greatly disappointed because I flew in the previous day specifically to address the committee and find a solution to the current impasse,” he said.

I think the PSL or SAFA, all the parties involved must treat this matter serious! FIFA will take his time to sort this thus that might delay & disorganize the fluency our impeccable league! This "appealing game" is just balderdash at it best! Someone must man up and accept the blame! Let them apologize for taking the league to disrepute! We cannot move around in circles over something this trivial! Let's not spoil the beautiful game tu! I can imagine what Ndoro is going through right now! His future is bleak just because of people who couldn't understand the English Language! Yhi! This is annoying, I rest my case!

For the fact that Ajax were given a green light by psl drc to utilize ndoro, I can't blame Ajax but I will blame this to psl drc. If safa and fifa if they were against using n doro, they suppose to action early not drag the case till end of the season

I blame Toothless khoza for all of this......And i hope the judge sticks to his story to keep Ajax in the psl so that Toothless KHOZA learns in a hard way not to run our Lig the way he runs his Mayfair drug ring#bogging from Newcastle

Khoza and Danny Jordan should both lead by example & show others that their time has run out. Khoza`s psl has failed South Africans big time while Danny's couldn't qualified Bafana into international stages unless if they host that particular events. Ndorogate shld use as an eye opener to psl admin. It's a taboo to find ourselves in such situation we are in right now.

They were rude, disrespectful and unprofessional. Khoza and Kaizer are not thinking properly due to old age. They are taking our football with them to retirement.

The Ajax matter has exposed the stupidity & idiotism in our psl management and administration. This is a big sign that we are being led by a bunch mafia gangsters who have no clue at all.

Yea sani we blacks were not acknowledged for a very long time and we still not very well acknowledged now. You might want to consult Ghandi who advocated that people like you not be treated the same as the "raw" blacks
