South African giants, Kaizer Chiefs will not be able to sign players in the next two transfer windows after their transfer ban was upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).
The Premier Soccer League side on their books were first suspended by world football governing body FIFA in December over the signing of Madagascar international Andriamirado Aro Hasina Andrianamimanana.
They appealed the decision at CAS but their appeal was struck out as CAS sided with FIFA’s Dispute Resolution chamber which sited that the player was still under contract with Fosa Juniors FC in Madagascar when he signed for Kaizer Chiefs.
Andrianamimana terminated the employment contract with Fosa Juniors FC “without just cause,” FIFA’s DRC stated.
The player and Kaizer Chiefs must now pay a joint amount of $40,000 as compensation to Fosa Juniors and Andrianamimaanana must serve a four-month playing ban.
