SAFA have now confirmed that Arbitrator Nassir Cassim SC has ruled that the Ndoro matter should be referred to the world football governing body.

“Arbitrator Nassir Cassim SC has ruled that the Tendai Ndoro matter be referred to the world football governing body, FIFA arguing the PSL’s Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC) does not have jurisdiction over the matter. 

“Orlando Pirates and Polokwane City had lodged a protest with the PSL arguing that Ajax Cape Town had contravened FIFA rules by fielding the player. The player played for Pirates before signing for a Saudi Arabia side Al Faisaly before returning to the PSL to join Ajax.

“FIFA rules prohibit a player to play for three different clubs in a single season. In his ruling on Wednesday, 28 March 2018, Cassim SC referred the case to FIFA saying it was because the matter involved an overseas/international club. He also ruled that in the meantime, the player should stop playing for Ajax,” confirmed SAFA on their official website.
