Transfer Saga: FIFA Is About To Impose Another Ban On Kaizer Chiefs
Regarding the transfer of defender Teenage Hadebe to Turkish club Yeni Malatyaspor, FIFA has ordered Kaizer Chiefs to pay Zimbabwe’s Chicken Inn R233 600 [USD13000].
FIFA’s tribunal confirmed that if Amakhosi does not pay the specified sum, they run the prospect of being prohibited from signing new players, domestically or internationally, in three consecutive transfer windows.
QUOTES FROM THE FIFA TRIBUNAL
At first glance, it appears that Hadebe signed a free-agent contract with the Turkey club. The Arthur Zwane coached-side did sell him, however for an unknown sum, it was discovered.
Chiefs must pay the Zimbabwean club, according to a decision made by the FIFA Players’ Status Chamber.
Emilio Garca Silvero, the chief legal and compliance officer for the IFA tribunal, wrote in a letter that “the claim of the claimant, Chicken Inn FC, is partially approved.”
The Kaizer Chiefs Football Club, the Respondent, is required to pay the claimant the following amount(s): USD 13,654.11 [R234 625,95] as outstanding remuneration plus 5% interest per annum from July 7, 2021, until the date of effective payment; USD 7,724.64 [R132 736,66] as outstanding remuneration plus 5% interest per annum from January 16, 2022, until the date of effective payment.
SANCTIONS SUFFERING BY KAIZER CHIEFS
If the Soweto giants do not cooperate, Emilio Garca Silvero threatened to suspend them for three transfer windows.
The letter states that until the outstanding balance is paid, “The Respondent shall be prohibited from registering any new players, either nationally or internationally.”
“The suspension may last up to three full and consecutive registration sessions at the most.
If full payment (including all relevant interest) is not completed by the conclusion of the three full and consecutive registration periods, the FIFA Disciplinary Committee will be contacted and asked to review the current case.
“The consequences may only be carried out at the claimant’s request and in accordance with paragraph 7 of Article 24.
