Kaizer Chiefs awaiting outcome of CAS appeal

"Kaizer Chiefs’ appeal against their two-window transfer ban was heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) today, Wednesday 09 September," read a statement from the club.

"The club will await the outcome on whether the appeal is successful or not."

Amakhosi face a two-window ban over the signing of Madagascan international 'Dax' Andrianarimanana, who was alleged to have been under contract with local side Fosa Juniors back in 2018.

The club, however, is arguing the legitimacy of the deal that Fosa presented to the FIFA Player's Status Committee, as it is alleged that the contract was both fraudulent and non-professional.

Fosa are also demanding payment for damages from both Chiefs and the player, who previously told snl24.com/kickoff that he will not be paying.
