The PSL have issued a statement on the matter of Tendai Ndoro’s eligibility for Ajax Cape Town following protests from both Orlando Pirates & Polokwane City.
It was ruled by the PSL's Dispute Resolutions Chamber that the Zimbabwean was eligible to play, however the PSL themselves then disagreed with it and filed their own appeal. Ajax continued to play Ndoro against the PSL's recommendation, which is what led to the protests from Pirates and City.
The basis of the complaint is that Ajax and Ndoro have broken FIFA rules by playing for three teams in a single season, turning out for the Buccaneers and Al Faisaly before his move to Cape Town.
A statement from the league read as follows:
“Orlando Pirates FC lodged a formal protest against the inclusion by Ajax Cape Town FC of the player Tendai Ndoro in their line up during their Absa Premiership fixture at the Cape Town City Stadium on 31 January 2018.
“Similarly, Polokwane City FC lodged a formal Protest against the inclusion by Ajax Cape Town FC of the player Tendai Ndoro in their line up during their Absa Premiership fixture at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on 04 February 2018.
“After hearing legal arguments from all three parties on a preliminary point of law, the Disciplinary Committee directed the parties to file short heads of argument dealing primarily with the jurisdiction of the DC to entertain the Protests within seven days.”
