Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Josta Dladla is free to resume his career with the Amakhosi following a decision by the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport (SAIDS).
"The player is ineligible to compete and participate in any authorised
or organised sport by any amateur or professional league or any national
or international level event organised during the period of January 9,
2014 to May 13, 2014, both dates inclusive," the statement said.
SAIDS found that the
midfielder failed a drugs test after the Soweto Derby against Orlando Pirates on
October 26, 2013, and it was subsequently found that he had
used a banned stimulant called Methylhexaneamine.“The decision effectively allows Josta Dladla to resume with his playing career from the 14th of May 2014 and we welcome the decision,” Chiefs said on their Twitter account.
