PORT ELIZABETH: In another high-profile case, Kaizer Chiefs had poor dealings with a club from Madagascar.

Chippa United are in hot water with FIFA due to misconduct in handling their former Tanzanian player, Abdi Banda’s affairs. The world governing football body has slapped the Eastern Cape-based club with a transfer ban. Consequently, they would not be able to register new players.

It has been reported that Chippa had initially agreed to pay Banda, who was in their books last season, an R1,2 million settlement for his dismissal, but the club reneged on its agreement, thereby prompting the player to seek legal recourse from FIFA.

At the beginning of the 2023/24 Premier Soccer League (PSL) season, the Tanzanian joined KwaZulu-Natal outfit Richards Bay. Chippa are not the only PSL outfit that has found themselves in the bad books of FIFA; they have joined the likes of Royal AM, who had also reneged on paying Samir Nurkovic a R12 million settlement after releasing him a few months in their books.

This has become a worrying trend in the way PSL clubs conduct their businesses with foreign players and foreign clubs.

In 2022, the now-defunct Bloemfontein Celtics unfairly dismissed their long-serving goalkeeper Patrick Tignyemb. The Cameroonian took his case to FIFA, which ordered the PSL to intervene and he was paid R 3 million in a settlement.

In another high-profile case, Kaizer Chiefs had poor dealings with a club from Madagascar for the service of Andriamirada Andrianarimanana. Amakhosi refused to pay his club an acquisition fee and the matter ended in the hands of FIFA, which slapped the Soweto Giants with a two-year transfer ban.

The aforementioned incidents raise questions about how the PSL clubs conduct their business with foreign players and foreign clubs. The trend appears to affect foreign players more than local players.
