Mabizela, Sundowns link under further strain


After failing to get hold of Mabizela for more than a week, club manager Harris Chueu finally tracked down the former Bafana Bafana skipper yesterday and ‘OJ’ promised that he would report at training this morning, but the players was nowhere to be found at Chloorkop today.

Sources close to the Brazilians have revealed that management is preparing disciplinary charges against Mabizela after establishing that he had lied about his father being sick and was seen around Johannesburg over the past weekend.

Sundowns’ media and communications manager Mahlatse Mphahlele tells that Mabizela promised to return back to the team today but failed to pitch up for training this morning.

Chueu was cagey when asked him about his conversation with Mabizela yesterday.

“You can ask me anything about Sundowns, but not Mabizela,” Chueu added.
