It has been reported that despite his FIFA ban, Black Leopards midfielder Andriamirado “Dax” Andrianarimanana will remain on the club’s payroll.
The Malagasy international was slapped with a four months ban and ordered to pay close to R600,000 in compensation costs together with Kaizer Chiefs, who were also banned from signing players for the next two transfer windows.
Dax’s former team Fosa Juniors lodged a complaint to FIFA that Dax left them for Chiefs in June 2018 without compensation.
However, despite the saga with FIFA, a source has revealed that Lidoda Duvha and the 28-year-old midfielder has reached an agreement for him to be paid during his four-month ban.
“Dax and Leopards have sorted out their issues. I can’t confirm how much he will be getting, but what I know is he will still be paid,” a source closed to the club told SowetanLive
Leopards manager Tshifhiwa Thidiela was reached for comments regarding the issue, but the manager was unwilling to reveal details on how they are going to pay Dax.
“We are not going to discuss those things. I can’t go and discuss his personal issues,” Thidiela said.
