Cape Town - FIFA have banned Kaizer Chiefs from registering players following the illegal signing of Andriamirado 'Dax' Andrianarimanana.

The world football governing body have stated that Amakhosi will not be able to register players for the next two windows, while Dax, who joined Black Leopards in 2019, is also banned for four months.

FIFA have punished Chiefs for not paying Dax's former club Fosa Juniors the amount owed due to the breaching of his contract back in December 2018.

The Soweto giants will have 21 days to appeal the registration ban.

"Chiefs shall be banned from registering players, either nationally or internationally, for the next two entire and consecutive registration periods," said FIFA in a statement.

"The world football's governing body's Single Judge decided to authorize SAFA to provisionally register the player for its affiliated club, Kaizer Chiefs with immediate effect.

"Respondent I, Andriamirado Aro Hasina Andrianarimanana, is ordered to pay to the Claimant, within 30 days as from the date of notification of this decision, compensation for breach of contract in the amount of MGA 157, 572, 000 plus 5% interest p.a from 11 December 2018 until the date of effective payment.

"Respondent II, Kaizer Chiefs FC, is jointly and severally liable for the payment of the aforementioned compensation.

"In the event that the aforementioned amount plus interest is not paid within the stated time limit, the present matter shall be submitted upon request, to the Fifa Disciplinary Committee for consideration and a formal decision."
