PSL to sensationally appeal DRC's Ndoro ruling

Cape Town - The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has sensationally decided to appeal the Dispute Resolution Chamber's decision to clear Tendai Ndoro to play for Ajax Cape Town.

Ajax Cape Town previously announced that Ndoro had been cleared by the PSL to face former side Orlando Pirates after a dispute over his eligibility.

PSL Statement on Dispute Resolution Chamber Ruling

The Premier Soccer League has noted the ruling of the PSL Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC) on the matter involving Ajax Cape Town and Mr Tendai Ndoro.

This morning, the PSL DRC issued a declaration order which cleared Mr Ndoro to play for Ajax Cape Town.

The PSL respects the decision of the DRC but disagrees with it. Consequently, the League will be taking the decision on appeal.

Before joining the Urban Warriors, Ndoro had played some minutes for Pirates but later left to sign for Al-Faisaly. However, after a short stay in Saudi Arabia he then returned to the Premiership to join up with coach Muhsin Ertugral at Ajax.

FIFA rules dictate that while a player can be registered for three clubs in one campaign, the individual can only play for two sides. In 2017/18 the 32-year-old forward has seemingly contravened the governing bodies laws.

The issue could now drag on and result in relegated teams appealing the DRC's decision if it rules in favour of Ajax and any other clubs that Ndoro featured against.
