Twist In Ndoro Matter, FIFA Respond

There has been a twist of events in the matter involving Tendai Ndoro and his eligibility to play for Ajax Cape Town. 

Ndoro has been registered with Orlando Pirates, Al-Faisaly and Ajax during the current 2017/18 campaign, having played for all three clubs so far this season, which indicated that the player might have contravened the FIFA regulations.

What happened this week:

Ajax requested an urgent hearing with the PSL DRC on Monday, January 29, to get a declaratory order, confirming whether or not Ndoro can play for the rest of season. 

Subsequently, on Tuesday, the PSL and Ajax confirmed that the DRC was yet to rule on the matter and that it was ongoing.

Today, Wednesday, the Urban Warriors announced that the PSL Dispute Resolution Chamber had ruled in favour of the club and that Ndoro is able to play for the club. 

Ajax tweeted on their official Twitter account, “The PSL Dispute Resolution Chamber has ruled in favour of Ajax Cape Town and Tendai Ndoro. The Zimbabwe international has been declared eligible for selection.”

However, Siya sources have now informed the Siya crew that the League has appealed the DRC ruling after FIFA responded on the matter, suggesting that the player is not able to play as per their rules, based on rule 5.3. 

Rule 5.3 states, “Players may be registered with a maximum of three clubs during one season. During this period, the player is only eligible to play official matches for two clubs. As an exception to this rule, a player moving between two clubs belonging to associations with overlapping seasons (i.e. start of the season in summer/autumn as opposed to winter/spring) may be eligible to play in official matches for a third club during the relevant season, provided he has fully complied with his contractual obligations towards his previous clubs.”

According to the Siya sources, Ajax have been advised by the league to not play Ndoro based on the League's appeal and pending the outcome.
