Cape Town - Madagascar club Fosa Juniors has said justice has been served after FIFA slapped Kaizer Chiefs with a transfer ban for the illegal acquisition of Andriamirado "Dax" Andrianarimanana.

Football's governing body ruled that Amakhosi will not be able to register any new players in the next two transfer windows after they said that 'Dax' still had an existing contract when he moved from Fosa Juniors to South Africa in 2018.

It was Fosa Juniors that reported Chiefs to FIFA, and they are now rejoicing that the Soweto giants will pay for their misdemeanour.

The Madagascar club said in a statement: "Fosa Juniors takes note of this historic decision, and we are pleased that justice is done.

"From now on, no illegal transfer of a Malagasy player will go away.

"This victory of Fosa Juniors is a victory for all clubs in Madagascar, and a victory for Malagasy football."

Chiefs have said that they will appeal against the decision as they feel they haven't done anything wrong and will go to the Court for Arbitration in Sport to get the ruling overturned.
