Kaizer Chiefs will have to adapt, improvise and work with what they have in this season because they will not be signing players.
This is after The Court of Arbitration for Sport Panel (CAS) dismissed their appeal and confirmed FIFA’s DRC decision.
This means Amakhosi cannot register players during the current transfer window and the next one in February and the only time they might possibly sign is July 1, 2021.
The statement released by CAS read:
“The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has issued its decision in the appeal filed by the Malagasy player Andriamirado Aro Hasina Andrianarimanana(the Player) and the South African club Kaizer Chiefs FC (collectively, the Appellants), against the decision rendered by the FIFA Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC) on 5 December 2019(the Challenged Decision).”
“In such decision, the FIFA DRC noted that the Player and Kaizer Chiefs entered into a new contract when the Player was still under contract with Fosa JuniorsFC/Madagascar. Given these circumstances, the FIFA DRC concluded that the Player unilaterally terminated the Employment Contract with Fosa Juniors Without just cause” read the statement.
The announcement also came as the Soweto soccer giant were preparing a game against Chippa United in the DStv PSL competition.
