The Premier Soccer League’s (PSL) arbitration over Tendai Ndoro’s eligibility will only be heard on March 26.
The PSL had hoped to expedite this important matter‚ which has gone to arbitration at the South African Football Association quickly.
Safa legal officer Tebogo Motlanthe‚ however‚ told TimesLIVE, a South African news website, the arbitration will be held in March because of the unavailability of Ajax Cape Town’s lawyer.
“It’s going to be heard on March 26‚” Motlanthe said.
Asked if this was because the parties could not agree on an arbitrator‚ Motlanthe said: “No‚ the arbitrator is not an issue. The issue is the availability of the lawyer for Ajax Cape Town.”
The PSL are appealing a decision by their own dispute resolution chamber (DRC) declaring Zimbabwean striker Ndoro eligible to play for Ajax‚ who he signed for in late December.
At issue is a Fifa ruling that states that a player cannot turn out for more than two teams in a season.
Ndoro played one game as a substitute for Orlando Pirates in August‚ transferred to and played for Al Faisaly in Saudi Arabia‚ then moved to Ajax.
