"No, nothing is happening at the moment hey, every off-season in Iran he comes to Cape Town and has some training sessions with us when he's off, that's the same as every other year that he's been there," CT City media officer Julian Bailey tells KickOff.
"He is still with the club in Iran, that's the latest as far as I know.
"The last few years, he's been joining us for pre-season because they start a lot later than us.
"I'm sure the chairman is beefing up, but with Patosi at the moment, it's the same as every year, training with us."
