ZIMBABWEAN international Kuda Mahachi has been cleared to play for South Africa Absa Premiership side Golden Arrows after winning his case against Mamelodi Sundowns.
The Zimbabwean forward took the Brazilians to the PSL Dispute Resolution Chamber in a bid to get his clearance due to a lack of game-time at Chloorkop.
He is available for Saturday’s Telkom Knockout last 16 against Ajax Cape Town after having been training with his new side for the last two weeks.
Premier Soccer League spokesperson Lux September confirmed the new development.
“The DRC met yesterday (Thursday) and ruled the case in favour of the player. Sundowns were ordered to issue his clearance.”
Mahachi, formerly of Chicken Inn and Highlanders in the Zimbabwean top flight, will return to Sundowns at the end of the season.
He has four years remaining on his contract with Patrice Motsepe’s side.
The player said he was not bitter about leaving Sundowns.
“I am happy that will now get chance and prove myself at Arrows.
“I have no hard feelings towards anyone at Sundowns, even though I was frustrated by a lack of game time, I understand this is part of football.
“I rate Pitso Mosimane as a good coach. He is the person who gave me my break in PSL. I will always respect him both as a coach and a person,” he added.
