Ertugral Gives More Than One Reason Why Ndoro Should Be Allowed To Play

Muhsin Ertugral Has Given His Reasons Why He Thinks Tendai Ndoro Should Be Playing At Ajax Cape Town

Ajax Cape Town head coach, Muhsin Ertugral has opened up about the FIFA ruling on Tendai Ndoro, saying that the rules need to have more clarity.

The Urban Warriors brought forward an urgent application in the High Court earlier this month, for an interdict against Ndoro’s ineligibility to play, the matter which is now with FIFA. 

However, speaking to the media on Monday, Ertugral opened up about the matter, questioning the protection of the FIFA rulings on players. The coach also adding that Ndoro, who he believes is not at fault, returned to South Africa after he wasn’t paid by the Saudi Arabian outfit, pointing out that it is one of the clauses in the regulations. 

“It says very clearly over overlapping seasons, how much overlap? That is not been clarified and then it says, let me speak about players’ perspective. A player plays 12 minutes in South Africa, goes to Saudi Arabia, different continent, has not been paid and comes back to his country (of) origin where he played and now he wants to play and there is a clause in there which says overlapping season.

“In the end is it fair for a player to stay now six months out. What is it that these rules actually protect? So that is the question I am asking, in the end, everything is about the player and I think that clause there should be (a) little bit more clarified and I think that will be done by FIFA. 

“Under one roof, that means three clubs under one roof (federation) should be not played and that clarified everything. He played under two clubs under one roof in my opinion, under one federation. That for me is very clear, two teams under one league (federation) and that should actually be the protection of the player. A player at that age and that situation, can’t be sitting out for the next six months because it is not his fault so that should be rectified a little bit more. For me, it was very clear that he should play. In the end, they said, you can use him, if I can use him I can use him so, unfortunately right now we will see how it goes,” he concluded.

With Ertugral you never know if he try to act dump or if he really is,unfortunately.the rule states a player can sign for 3 teams but play for Ndoro's instance as per this rule he could signed with ajax,stay in his saudi arabian team,or went to pirates(not that we needed him,must add that).but is the what does he mean by rules not looking for interest of player by letting him to sit out for 6 months,and not playing?ajax took gamble and that could see them play in first division,easily.rules are rules and even muhsin's team need to adhere to.

The only logical statement here is the overlapping. The rest is bull. FIFA should clarify what they mean by overlapping and see if the exception applied in Ndoro's case. Dont tell us about payments, 12 minutes, fact is he registered and played for all three teams

This thing is a fool, if indeed Ndoro wasn't paid, he should have complained to FIFA n asked for their intervention. They have an arbitration body. He should also have requested them to relax the rules b4 signing n playing 4 Ajax. In the event the Saudi club was found to b in the wrong, he was going to b granted permission to play

Rules are clear Sir, an international coach like yourself should have known better. PSL appealed the decision by the DRC but you went further and played Ndoro..just pray FIFA grants replays on the games played under protest.

You not making any sense, rules are rules everybody needs to follow them we can't have players running around like head less chicken. Ndoro was at Pirates, one of the big teams in South Africa he decided to leave the team for a no-name team now it's time to face the reality
