Chaos As Ajax Verdict Reshuffles League Table

The PSL Table Has Changed After The Ajax Verdict

By Soccer Laduma - May 15, 2018 01:08 PM

The Absa Premiership has been plunged into chaos just one day before the relegation play-offs were due to get underway, with Ajax Cape Town the biggest casualties.

After months of back and forth regarding the eligibility of Tendai Ndoro, who has played for three clubs this season, the South African Football Association today confirmed that Ajax forfeit their wins against SuperSport United and Platinum Stars, as well as their draw with Polokwane City. 

It was decided that 3-0 wins would be handed to all three of the clubs, effectively docking Ajax seven points, with three points being given to their appealing teams. This would mean that the Urban Warriors drop down to 16th and Dikwena go 15th.

Meanwhile, the victory for SuperSport means that they climb up the table to seventh place – securing an MTN8 spot – while AmaZulu got caught in the crossfire as they fall down to the eighth spot. Polokwane, meanwhile, will move from 13th to 11th

Given the points changes, the lower half of the Absa Premiership table now looks as follows:

7. SuperSport - 39
8. Arrows - 38
9. AmaZulu - 38 
10. Chippa - 37 
11. Celtic - 37 
12. Polokwane - 36
13. Wits - 36 
14. Baroka - 34 
15. Platinum Stars - 27 
16. Ajax - 24

It remains to be seen whether Ajax will appeal the decision, which also saw them fined R150,000 for the league games.

Our soccer have been a joke for many years now but this time around it is not even funny. We were told that that nobody get points from the table. Boom today prople get points they dont deserve. What about those who beat Ajax while Ndoro was playing. All of a sudden teams who worked hard all season long are out of top8 ( I mean AmaZulu to be exact). Why psl cases always take long? It take a year for Pirates case to be resolved. Why Kaizer Chiefs case is not resolved? PSL must do their job and let what police need to do. Chiefs already pleaded guilty but the case was postponed. Why referees review committee always takes time before it sit while games are going on every week? As supporters we have many questions but they always fall to deaf ears.

Ajax cannot suffer due to poor management of Psl. This league is a joke.

Amazulu should protest too. This decision shouldn't have affected other teams on the log. Sis
