Under-fire coach Vincent Kobola faces an increasingly bleak future following an unpaid salary for November amid an ongoing disciplinary matter.

Kobola is currently serving a suspension after being charged with missing first-team training for two weeks due to attending a coaching course.

The former Mpumalanga Black Aces defender was part of the SAFA License C coaching course held in Johannesburg recently.

"The poor guy was suspended for attending a coaching course," a source close to the matter tells KickOff.

"He has not even received his latest salary at the end of last month but still has not been found guilty."

Kobola declined to comment on his ongoing suspension.

"I can't comment on this issue to the media. I have the highest respect for the club and the chairman," Kobola insisted.

Baroka FC Richard Mashabane confirmed Kobola remains part of the club, but was not aware that he failed to receive his salary.

"We sat for the hearing on 28 November, and we still are waiting for the verdict.

"I am not aware of it, and that's not my department, while he did not bring that to my attention," said Mashabane.
