CAPE TOWN: The striker joined the Urban Warriors in January and has been used by the club since joining but that is something which violates a FIFA rule.

Ajax Cape Town quest to survive relegation has hit a knock after SAFA ordered them to stop using Zimbabwean striker, Tendai Ndoro as the matter is now referred to FIFA.

The striker joined the Urban Warriors in January and has been used by the club since joining but that is something which violates a FIFA rule. The matter has been a subject for a while now and has reached another level as FIFA have the case in their hands now after being handed over by SAFA.

The statement from SA reads:

“Arbitrator Nassir Cassim SC felt that the case should be referred to FIFA, as the PSL’s DRC does not have jurisdiction over the matter. In 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.”

The PSL DC had previously ruled against protests from teams which lodged complaints over Ndoro’s eligibility to play and told Ajax Cape Town to continue using Ndoro. They had indicated on Monday that a decision would be made next Wednesday.
