Kaizer Chiefs may have to fit the bill for their blunder in signing Madagascan midfielder 'Dax', who says he is not paying a cent to former club Fosa Juniors.
Andriamirado Andrianarimanana, who is now a Black Leopards player, has responded to accusations that he signed an 'illegal' contract with former club Kaizer Chiefs.
'Dax' as the player is known has been banned by football governing body FIFA for four months after his move from Fosa Juniors to South African giants Chiefs back in 2018.
Amakhosi were also sanctioned not to sign any new players in the next two transfer windows, and have confirmed they are appealing the sentence.
The Madagascar international is putting his foot down, saying he will never pay the money FIFA has ordered him to pay.
'Dax' and Chiefs are 'jointly and severally' liable to pay close to R640 000 in compensation to the Malagasy club.
"No, it's just a problem for this union FIFA, and I'm not playing for four months," Dax tells KickOff.com.
"I'm staying with Leopards. I'm staying with Leopards and training every day. I'm not paying, hhayi! I'm not paying. That's problem for transfer for Chiefs and the club in Madagascar. Ja, that's problem for transfer money. I'm not paying, papa."
Did he have a professional contract with the Malagasy club?
"For Fosa? I have no contract. I don't know [where they got that contract]. This one is crazy, papa. Madagascar is crazy. It don't like me, it's killing me," he says.
"Ja, that's the problem. I have no contract in Madagascar and they are killing me. There was no problem [all this time]... after one year, problem again, why? Ja, it's problem again. I don't know, I don't know he's paying FIFA, I don't know.
"He's paying money for FIFA the club in Madagascar Fosa Juniors, and this changed the papers... I don't know.
"Check in before two years I'm staying in South Africa, FIFA gives me a clearance, and SAFA gives me a card PSL, I play, and no problem. After two years again... problem. Why? You understand? Papa, I don't know. I'm not playing four months. I'm not paying money."
The 28-year-old attacking midfielder says he is not at Leopards on loan, as most people believe.
"No, I'm a Leopards player, I'm not loaned, it's transfer."
