Ajax Cape Town’s appeal against the ruling of SAFA’s arbitration on striker Tendai Ndoro was dismissed by the Southern Gauteng High Court on Tuesday.
Ajax had sought to interdict the decision after Ndoro was ordered to stop playing for the Urban Warriors following the Premier Soccer League’s appeal against its own Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC).
The 32-year-old’s eligibility dispute stems from a Fifa ruling that a player may not turn out for more than two clubs in a season.
The Zimbabwean striker played a game for Orlando Pirates in August‚ then signed and played for Al Faisaly in Saudi Arabia‚ before signing for Ajax in late December and playing seven games for them.
The PSL appealed at Safa arbitration a surprising decision by its own dispute resolution chamber (DRC) on January 31 ruling Ndoro eligible to play for Ajax.
The arbitration referred the matter to Fifa.
