FIFA are believed to have refused to make a judgement on the dispute between the Premier Soccer League and Ajax Cape Town striker Tendai Ndoro.

According to a statement posted on Twitter by Ajax, FIFA Players’ Status Committee referred the matter back to South African authorities saying they don’t have a jurisdiction on the matter.

The dispute is arising from Ndoro’s eligibility after he featured for three clubs in the same season – Orlando Pirates, Al Faisaly and Ajax Cape Town.

The matter was initially heard by the PSL’s Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC), who ruled in favour of Ndoro and declared the Zimbabwean international eligible to play but PSL opposed the ruling.
