In addition Ajax Cape Town were fined a total of R350 000.
The Urban Warriors, who prior to the guilty verdict had finished 15th in the standings, were set to face Black Leopards and Jomo Cosmos in the promotion/relegation playoffs, but will now be replaced by Platinum Stars, who originally finished bottom of the standings, but moved up to 15th after Ajax's demise on Tuesday.
"Adv Mokhari SC awarded the matches played by Ajax Cape Town against Platinum Stars, Polokwane City and Supersport United to those clubs with a 3-0 scoreline".
Mzansi's football fraternity was shocked yesterday, on May 15, when the South African Football Association (SAFA) announced that Ajax had been found guilty of fielding Tendai Ndoro, and the outcome meant that the Urban Warriors had been relegated.
Ndoro has represented three clubs this season, including Orlando Pirates, Saudi Arabian side Al Faisaly and Ajax Cape Town, which is against football governing body FIFA's rules. The club is in the process of preparing papers to be filed urgently before the High Court in Johannesburg for the matter to be heard tomorrow morning (Wednesday) at 10am.
Ajax will now seek an urgent court interdict to stop the relegation/promotion playoffs from taking place. "During this season‚ the player is only eligible to play official matches for two clubs".Читайте также: Massive dust storm hits Delhi-NCR in early morning today
AmaZulu were less than charmed with the ruling.
AmaZulu coach Cavin Johnson was fuming after his team was knocked out of the top-eight finishers by SuperSport following Ajax's relegation.
"As a club we have not as yet decided on what decision to take‚" he said. It's a pity because we did our job on the field of play, but now an off-the-field decision has dealt a blow to all of that.
By contrast, Platinum Stars were thrilled with their second lease on life in the premiership.
"To be honest‚ we didn't know what we were waiting for but we chose to keep the players here in Rustenburg in case something like this happened".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
