The off-the-field drama between Royal AM and midfielder Ndumiso Mabena continues after the player was suspended on Thursday.

Mabena and Royal AM are set to meet at the Labour Court in Durban on Friday over alleged unpaid salaries owed to the player.

The former Orlando Pirates midfielder is believed to have not received his monthly salary from the club for the past two months since July.

"Yes, the club has suspended the player for not attending training,"  a source close to Mabena tells KickOff.

"The suspension letter was sent to the player yesterday.

"The player is set to appear before the club DC next week."

Meanwhile, Royal AM are set to meet with Serbian striker Samir Nurkovic to discuss his future at the club.

Nurkovic is yet to make his debut for Royal AM since joining in a highly-publicised transfer from Kaizer Chiefs in August.

The former Chiefs striker is currently nursing a long-term injury picked up at Naturena last season.
