• Fifa give Chiefs’ Dax clearance

    Kaizer Chiefs’ attacking midfielder Andriamirado ‘Dax’ Andrianarimanana

    Kaizer Chiefs’ battle to register Andriamirado ‘Dax’ Andrianarimanana is over, after Fifa allowed the Soweto giants to complete the player’s registration.

    The Madagascan international has been the subject of a long transfer battle between Chiefs and Madagascan side Fosa Juniors who claimed Dax had a running contract.

    The Glamour Boys, however, were under the impression that due to the amateur nature of the league, Dax was a free agent, while the player himself has claimed his contract ended in June.

    Chiefs went on to announce the signing of Dax at the beginning of August. His debut, however, has been delayed as Fosa refused to issue Dax’s clearance, which is needed for his new registration, which led Chiefs to take the matter to Fifa.

    Chiefs then revealed on Wednesday that Fifa has given them the green light to register the 27-year-old.

    In a statement on the club’s website, football manager Bobby Motaung said, ‘Attacking midfielder Andriamirado “Dax” Andrianarimanana has provisionally been cleared to play for Amakhosi by Fifa’s players’ status committee.

    ‘The world football’s governing body’s single judge decided to authorise SAFA to provisionally register the player for its affiliated club, Kaizer Chiefs with immediate effect.

    ‘Amakhosi fans can expect to see the new jersey number 6 in action soon.

    ‘We feel vindicated and are happy the matter has been resolved. What’s important for us is that the player can now focus on his football and doing well for us, concluded Motaung.
