Chiefs in hot water with CAF 27/04/05
South African Premier Soccer League champions Kaizer Chiefs face a three-year ban from all African competitions.

The Mighty Amakhosi are likely to handed this punishment by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) after withdrawing from the Confederation Cup on Tuesday. Chiefs were required to participate in the Confederation Cup after being knocked out of the preliminary rounds of the Champions League by Esperance this past weekend.

Although the North African giants lost the second-leg 2-1 in Rustenburg on Saturday, the majority of the job was already completed in Tunis when Chiefs were thumped 4-0 in the first-leg.

The Naturena management claim that their domestic schedule is too congested for them to fulfill their African commitments.

CAF, however, have strict regulations relating to cases like these. A US$2,000 fine is imposed along with the three-year ban to any club that fails to honour it's fixtures in the continental tournaments.

Any fine of such nature would have a major impact on Chiefs as the team are still in the running to qualify for next year's Champions League by virtue of their current log position on the PSL table.
