Kermit Erasmus can't play in CAF Champions League

Posted: 31 July 2013 Time: 16:58

KickOff.com can reveal that CAF turned down Orlando Pirates’ attempts to have new signing Kermit Erasmus registered for the Champions League.

The Buccaneers signed the striker from SuperSport United on July 23 and sent a mail to CAF the next day to request his registration.

However, four days later the to-be-expected reply came back where the continent’s governing body explained that as Erasmus had turned out for Matsatsantsa in the CAF Confederations Cup this season, he would not be permitted to feature for another club in the Champions League.

According to Article 26, Para 9: “During the same year a player is in principle only eligible to play for one and the same club in the CAF inter-club competitions. However, a player, even though registered on the list of a club who has not been fielded in any match of inter clubs competitions, will be authorized to play for another participating club in the inter-clubs competitions during the same year so long as all the regulations are complied with.”

Mr Editor, please do a proper job. Tell us then, when does CAF calendar year start and end. Till when will KERMIT not play. My understanding is that if BUCS continue to last Four, then they may register the player.

The Buccaneers must learn to read Laws of the game plus CAF policy,which states clearly that no player is allowed to play for two different teams in CAF Tournaments viz CAF Confederations Cup and CAF Champions League,since while Erasmus played for Super Sport Utd before they were eliminated in CAF Confed there is no way he can play in CAF Chmp Leaguer in the same year please understand this tse Ntsho.
