JOHANNESBURG, April 24 – The Johannesburg High Court on Tuesday dismissed the application of Ajax Cape Town concerning the review of Safa’s eligibility decision concerning striker Tendai Ndoro.
Ndoro was in breach of the Fifa rule which states a player may not appear for more than two clubs in a season. The Zimbabwean striker played one game for Orlando Pirates in August, before signing and playing for Saudi Arabian side Al Faisaly. Signing for Ajax in December, Ndoro played seven games for the Cape side.
Ajax Cape Town and Ndoro brought an application to review the decision of advocate Nassim Cassim as arbitrator for the SA Football Association (Safa), which ruled that the Dispute Resolution Chamber had no jurisdiction to rule on the matter of Ndoro.
The High Court t dismissed Ndoro’s and Ajax Cape Town’s application.
Consequently Cassim’s ruling in favour of the League’s position stands.
