AmaZulu complains about Tembu Royals player identity

AmaZulu have lodged a complaint against second division club, Tembu Royals for using an ineligible player during their Nedbank Cup match

This comes after Royals had beaten AmaZulu 2-1 in the last 32 round Nedbank match which was played at the King Zwelithini Stadium in KwaZulu-Natal.

Royals fielded Zukisa Ginya who used his younger brother’s identity document which shows him as a 21-year-old.

AmaZulu PRO, Philani Mabaso said, they were told by some people from the Eastern Cape that this player had registered with his younger brother’s identity document.

“We were told by some Eastern Cape residence to clearly look into the matter as they felt that Ginya was using his brothers identity document. We have reported the case to the PSL and we are now waiting for the outcome,” said Mabaso.

If Tembu Royals appear guilty they will face a disciplinary hearing and AmaZulu will advance to the next stage and play against Maritzburg United on Sunday.

Tembu Royals coach Lwandile Magula told that he is not aware of any complaints, and as far as he is concerned his club will be playing against United.

"I have just returened from training, and what you asking me is news to me. I have not heard of such things, and all my players are illegible to play for my club.

"We are preparing for the game against United and the moral is very high. Even Zukisa was in training today and there was nothing that we discussed regarding this issue," said Magula.
