Ajax Cape Town relegated after being found guilty in Ndoro saga

File Tendai Ndoro in action for Ajax Cape Town

"They lose all three matches 3-0 & fined R50 000 on each offence", SAFA stated on their official Twitter account at the time.

Mokhari forfeited three matches - wins against Platinum Stars and SuperSport United‚ and a draw against Polokwane City - in favour of Ajax's opponents as he ruled that the club was the third Ndoro had played for this season‚ in contravention of Federation Internationale de Football Association regulations. Ndoro played a game for Orlando Pirates in August‚ then signed for and played for Al Faisaly in Saudi Arabia.

Ajax had finished 15th on the log with 31 points from 30 matches but the subtraction puts them below Platinum Stars‚ who were officially relegated at the weekend before Tuesday's ruling.

SOUTH AFRICAN side Ajax Cape Town have revealed they will battle to overturn the decision to relegate them from the country's Premiership due to their use of Zimbabwean worldwide forward Tendai Ndoro in some league matches.

"The club is in the process of preparing papers to be filed urgently before the high court in Johannesburg for the matter to be heard tomorrow at 10am". The PSL charged Ajax with using a player who had already played for two different clubs previously in a single season.

Platinum Stars' rise was as a result of Ajax having to forfeit the points they gained in matches with Dikwena, Polokwane City and SuperSport United.
