The Premier Soccer League has confirmed that they have received a written complaint from AmaZulu against Tembu Royals after their loss to the Second Division side in the Nedbank Cup.
Tembu Royals beat AmaZulu 2-1 at King Zwelithini Stadium on February 27 in the last 32 match, but the Durban club claims that Royals fielded an ineligible player.
“AmaZulu are contesting the eligibility of Tembu Royals player Zukisa Ginya who played against them during the Nedbank Cup last 32 fixture on 27 February 2013.
“In the interest of finding a speedy resolution and finality, the PSL has referred the matter directly to Safa Arbitration as per the Rules of the League,” the PSL says.
KickOff.com has learnt that the photo taken of Ginya before the match for a team photo is not the same person as is in his ID document.
“It is alleged that he is not playing with his identity, but with his brother’s. So it is case of false identity and we passed on the info to the PSL, so they can investigate," AmaZulu PRO Philani Mabaso says.
