Cape Town - The Premier Soccer League (PSL) will not intervene or assist Kaizer Chiefs with their appeal against a two-window transfer ban imposed by FIFA.

World football's governing body banned Amakhosi from registering new players after they found that the transfer of Andriamirado 'Dax' Andrianarimanana from Madagascar club Fose Juniors in 2018 was illegal.

PSL prosecutor Nandre Becker said they have taken note of the ruling but won't get involved after Chiefs said they intend to appeal the judgement at the Court for Arbitration in Sport in Switzerland.

Becker told KickOff: "It doesn't really affect the PSL.

"They (FIFA) will make the ruling obviously and a copy will be sent through to the League so that we can amend our records accordingly."

"Look, it's virtually a private matter between the club and FIFA at the end of the day.

"There's no involvement from the League's point of view, we haven't done anything, we weren't involved.

"So, there's not much we can do from our side except to say 'listen, we are bound by the FIFA decision until it's changed or set aside'."
