African Giants Receive FIFA Ban Over Ex-Chiefs Star

Young Africans SC have received their second transfer ban from FIFA in less than a month, this time over outstanding payments to former Kaizer Chiefs player Lazarous Kambole.

Just three weeks ago, Yanga were received a  FIFA ban over irregularities with their player registration. The ban has also been enforced by the Tanzanian Football Federation (TFF).

This week, the TFF announced the latest blow for Yanga, stating they have lost the case against former player Kambole after failing to settle outstanding salary and signing on fee.

“The Young Africans club in the NBC Premier League has been banned from registering until it pays its former player Lazarus Kambole,” The TFF stated.

“The decision has been made by the International Football Federation (FIFA) after the player win a civil case against the club.

“The Zambian player filed a case with FIFA demanding payment of salary arrears and compensation for breach of contract.

“Young Africans was supposed to have paid him within 45 days since the decision was made, but it did not implement the decision.

“While FIFA has banned the club from transferring international players, the Football Federation Tanzania (TFF) has also banned it from doing internal transfers.

“TFF reminds the clubs to respect the contracts that have been signed with the players and coaches to avoid various penalties including being banned from registering.”

Kambole joined Yanga in 2022/23 after leaving Kaizer Chiefs, but never featured for the Tanzanian giants. Just six months later he joined ZESCO United on loan, and the deal was renewed at the beginning of the current season.
