The Urban Warriors can breathe a sigh of relief after the PSL Dispute Resolution Chamber declared Ndoro eligible to play for them this season

Ajax Cape Town have confirmed that they have won their case with the Premier Soccer League (PSL) Dispute Resolution Chamber which involved Tendai Ndoro.

The Zimbabwe international was absent from the club's PSL encounter at home to Free State Stars on Friday after his eligibility was questioned.

The Urban Warriors revealed the big news on Wednesday morning on Twitter that reads as follows:

“The PSL DRC has ruled in favour of Ajax Cape Town and Tendai Ndoro. The Zimbabwean has been declared eligible for selection,” a statement read.

According to Fifa rules, no player is allowed to play for three clubs in one season, but Ndoro has featured for Orlando Pirates, Saudi Arabian club Al Faisal as well as Ajax in the current campaign.

By playing for the Urban Warriors this season it means that the marksman has contravened that section of the Fifa rules and his signing left a lot of question marks that the club’s hierarchy needed to answer.

Ndoro made his debut in a 3-1 win at home to Platinum Stars where he came from the bench to score the third goal as he announced his arrival at the Western Cape side.

He joined the club after being recommended by Ajax head coach Muhsin Ertugral, who worked with the former Nico United player at the defunct Mpumalanga Black Aces and Orlando Pirates.

Despite his quality in front of goal that he is known to possess, the 29-year-old failed to set the scene alight in the Middle East making only five appearances in all competitions for Al Faisal.

Ertugral and Ndoro are fondly remembered for their time together at Pirates, where Ndoro had a blistering start to the 2016/17 season during the Turkish mentor’s five-month spell

However, Ertugral called it quits after Pirates’ 6-1 annihilation by SuperSport United in a league game  in November 2016.

Ndoro left Bucs after two seasons following his arrival from Aces. His time with the Ghosts saw him accumulate 60 appearances in all competitions, scoring 23 goals in the process.
