Kaizer Chiefs have taken to Twitter to announce that the club will not be allowed to register any player for two transfer windows consecutively. This comes after The Court of Arbitration for Sport Panel (CAS) has dismissed Amakhosi's appeal and confirmed FIFA’s DRC decision.
On Tuesday, the court dismissed Chiefs appeal. This, in turn, solidifies that they cannot sign a new player for two transfer windows. The transfer window for the 2020/2021 season opened on 22 September and will run until 17 November.
Fans have been tweeting at the official Kaizer Chiefs Twitter account for a while asking for an update on the situation with CAS. Many have now responded to the team's tweet asking questions and speaking about what they should focus on now.
News24 reported that this would be a major blow to new head coach, Gavin Hunt, after he was hired to bring back the "glory days" to the club. According to KickOff, July 2021 will be the earliest that new registrations can be made.
Take a look at some of the fan responses below:
"If we can promote from our own development then we can let Hlanthi and Nange play for the development and promote them to the senior team after a week, just a suggestion because we can't sign from other clubs."
"This too shall pass. Let's soldier on khosi."
In other Chiefs news, Briefly.co.za recently reported that Gavin Hunt admitted his team's defence needs work after loss to Sundowns. Kaizer Chiefs suffered an embarrassing 3-0 loss at the hands of Mamelodi Sundowns in their opening fixture of the DStv Premiership.
Chiefs looked way out of their depth as Sundowns dominated the match at the FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The goals were scored by new signing Kermit Erasmus, Themba Zwane, and Peter Shalulile.
Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt remarked that the difference was that Sundowns made some high profile signings during the transfer window. Hunt was left frustrated at his team's performance and remarked on their schoolboy defending.
