CAPE TOWN- Muhsin Ertugral Ajax Cape Town coach has re-affirmed that the PSL can not deducted points whatever the outcome of their appeal over striker Ndoro player eligibility after his transfer from Saudi Arabia.
The PSL has no authority to deduct points after the right body give what Ertugral says the right decision.
If the PSL appeal is successful in it appeal, he said, “People say they might take points – how do we know that? It is hypothetical talk‚ so let’s see what they do‚” Ertugral said.
“I personally don’t believe we can be deducted points and I know from my side it won’t happen.
“The DRC has decided we can use him‚ so I am going for it. There will be (another) hearing very soon about it.
“First the officials said‚ ‘wait‚ don’t use him’‚ and we did that. Then the DRC said we can use him‚ so I am using him. There has been no other letter from the officials to now say not to use him again.”
In terms of FIFA regulations a player cannot feature or play for three teams in the same season‚ although Ertugral has issues with that interpretation of this rule. He said,
“I spoke to some people internationally and the interpretation doesn’t make sense for me‚” he said.
“It should be‚ if you want to protect the players and the clubs‚ just under one roof‚ under one federation‚ that you are not allowed to play for three teams.
“Just imagine a player plays one game here‚ goes to a different part of the world‚ can’t make it there‚ doesn’t get paid … so is it fair the that player is now one year off (on the sidelines)? That is the case we need to think about.”
