Premier Soccer League clears Tendai Ndoro to play for Ajax Cape Town

The league ruled in favour of the Urban Warriors and they will now use Ndoro

The Premier Soccer League (PSL) Disciplinary Committee has ruled against Orlando Pirates and Polokwane City after the two clubs launched a protest against Ajax Cape Town.

The Buccaneers and Rise and Shine had lodged a protest against the Urban Warriors, who fielded Zimbabwean striker Tendai Ndoro in their matches at the beginning of the year.

The two PSL teams questioned Ndoro’s eligibility to play for the Ikamva-based club in what as they argued that it was against Fifa transfer rules where a player cannot represent three clubs in one calendar season.

The former Chicken Inn, Pirates and Mpumalanga Black Aces forward left the Soweto giants last year and joined Saudi Arabian side, Al Faisaly.

However, he came back in January and joined the Mother City side prompting protests from the two clubs where they took the matter to the PSL DC.

Moreover, SuperSport United is one of the clubs that also filed formal protests against Ndoro’s appearances for Muhsin Ertgural’s men.

Although, the PSL’s Dispute Resolution ruled in favour of Ajax earlier this year, the PSL appealed the decision, but the Mother City has announced that the ruling went in their favour.

The Warriors international has featured for the relegation-threatened side on seven occasions since his arrival in January as well as one match in the Nedbank Cup against the Buccaneers.

Ajax took to their Twitter page to announce the news as they delight in having rights to use the 29-year-old in their quest to evade the relegation axe.
