Fifa has banned PSL side TS Galaxy for the next three transfer windows after failing to pay for the failed January transfer of Ivorian striker Bernard Yao Kouassi.

The PSL side purchased the Ivorian in January, who failed to play for the club due to registration issues and has since left, leaving club owner Tim Sukazi to pay R1.8 million to avoid the ban.

According to iDiski Times, Sukazi, who former player Xola Mlambo criticised, said the side felt cheated following the ruling and would pay R1.8 million to avoid the ban.

Sukazi said:

"There's only one way now of sorting it out, we have to pay these guys, we have to. It's R1.8m we have to throw like we getting it from the river."

Fans agree with Sukazi

Football fans took to social media, saying the club must pay to get the ban lifted despite agreeing that the club, who could lose coach Sead Ramovic, has been unfairly punished.
