“Following FIFA’s decision on the transfer we detained from Dax, Fosa Juniors FC takes note of this historic decision, and we are pleased that justice is being done,” read the club statement.

“From now on, no illegal transfer of a Malagasy player will go unpunished. This victory of Fosa Juniors is a victory for all clubs in Madagascar, and a victory for Malagasy football.”
