Boukhari cleared to play in Cup final

Nourdin Boukhari has been cleared to play in Sunday's Cup final against PSV. Ajax's midfielder was shown a red card in the last playoff match against FC Groningen, but the disciplinary committee of the Dutch FA acquitted him, as did they Groningen player Danny Buys, due to lack of evidence.

Boukhari and Buijs were accused of grabbing each other's throats in the final seconds of the last playoff match in Groningen, when they were both red-carded.

Ajax will miss Mauro Rosales, Hatem Trabelsi and Zdenek Grygera in the Cup final against champions PSV. Hedwiges Maduro is doubtful for that match.
