ABSA Premier Soccer league outfit Ajax Cape Town will forever be grateful to the Johannesburg High Court after it ruled against their relegation from the topflight following the fielding of ineligible Zimbabwean striker Tendai Ndoro.
Monday’s ruling by South African Judge Denise Fisher meant Ajax Cape town have effectively been restored to 15th position in the Absa Premiership, with Platinum Stars dropping to 16th.
Ndoro who was once accused of single handedly sinking Ajax into the murky waters of relegation will breathe a sigh of relief as the guilty charge of relegating the team has vanished.
This will probably be a breather for the Zimbabwean soccer star whose frustrations were now manifesting to the public through domestic violence.
Last month he slept behind bars for allegedly assaulting his wife over car keys.
His only worry now is when he will be eligible to play as he awaits for Fifa Players’ Status Committee for a final ruling.
The Zimbabwean forward however, highlighted that after this stressful debacle he was in no rush to join another team.
“Right now I just need a small holiday because this season was not a good one for me. I had a bad season, I have to accept that. I played for Pirates for 13 minutes. I went to Saudi and things were not going well there. I had to come back and I had issues again, so it was a bad season. I hope to bounce back.”
