Johannesburg - SAFA spokesperson Morio Sanyane admits he is unsure on the status of Steven Pienaar's reported injury following a vague posting on Everton's official website.

The Toffees and Bafana playmaker has been ruled out of Sunday's crucial AFCON qualifier in Sierra Leone due to a groin problem.

However, the Merseysiders on Wednesday described Pienaar's injury as "unknown" without revealing when he would return, while comprehensive details were provided for the rest of the club's sidelined players.

"It's all rather strange," Sanyane said on the Sowetan website.

"We've always enjoyed a cordial relationship with Everton regarding Pienaar's availability and had no cause to doubt he had an injury this time.

"But the news on the website is a little disturbing.

"Perhaps they have just got their wires crossed at the club, particularly as Pienaar missed out on Everton's last Premier League game as well."
