Chiefs Appealing Transfer Ban

13 Feb 2020

Kaizer Chiefs are confident of winning their appeal after being handed a two-window transfer ban by FIFA over the signing of "Dax" Andrianarimanana.

Amakhosi were found guilty of signing the Madagascar international illegally from Fosa Juniors last season, after they believed he was a free agent.

Fosa, though, insisted the forward was still contracted to them for another two years and took the matter to the global body, who ruled in their favour.

Meanwhile, Dax joined Black Leopards and has subsequently been banned from playing for four months and slapped with a fine in the region of R650 000.

"We will appeal, but we won't tell you when,” said Chiefs’ Communication Manager Vina Maphosa. “The case has got nothing to do with our planning for matches. When you appeal, you appeal because you know you will win the appeal. You don't just appeal. But I can’t discuss the case, sorry. I can't. Not at all. No comments there.”

Chiefs are nine points clear at the top of the Absa Premiership standings and are on course to win their first title in five years.

They are also in the Nedbank Cup Round of 16.
