Yet another DStv Premiership side has had to face the wrath of FIFA over salary issues.

The PSL has been no stranger to such instance and Richards Bay FC are the latest to be hit!

In years gone by, teams at all levels have been punished by FIFA, for various or similar reasons. One of the most popular recent cases was that of Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs.The four-time PSL champions were banned for the illegal signing of Malagasy star Andriamirado ‘Dax’ Andrianarimanana in 2020. They were then banned for two transfer windows. That would end up affecting them and then coach Gavin Hunt in the worst way.

TS Galaxy banned from transfers

The next team to be hit with the FIFA ban would be Royal AM. They would twice be hit with charges after failing to pay off Riccardo Nascimento and Samir Nurkovic. The last team to suffer this fate was Richards Bay FC who have been banned by FIFA for three transfer windows after failing to pay former player Ovella Ochieng.

Now the latest side to suffer the wrath of FIFA is TS Galaxy. According to FARPost, they have been slapped with a transfer window ban for an unpaid amount of R1.8 million owed to a former player Ivorian striker Bernard Yao Kouassi.

“A ban from registering new players internationally has been implemented by FIFA as of today. Moreover, and in accordance with the aforementioned decision. Respondent ́s member association is requested to immediately implement on the respondent, the Club TS Galaxy FC, a ban from registering new players at national level.” Wrote a letter to the Rockets seen by the publication above.

Player to be affected

Galaxy have also been ordered to pay R81,973.68 in legal fees. This could be a problem for them, having agreed a swap deal to sign Qobolwakhe Sibande for Lehlohonolo Mojela. The club is yet to make a statement on the matter.
