Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Teko Modise has revealed his frustration at claims that he did not follow the correct protocol when rejecting his call-up to the Bafana Bafana side for the tour of Australasia.

Modise, along with Sthembiso Ngcobo, Oupa Manyisa and Thabo Matlaba, are all being investigated for 'bunking' national team duty.

The four players were late call-ups to the squad, but opted to miss out.

According to KickOff.com website, Teko, who SAFA claim failed to follow the correct procedure, has dismissed the claims.

“I do not understand why people are saying that I did not follow the correct procedure when the team called me up,” he said. “Sundowns undertook that procedure on my behalf and I am sure they followed protocol with SAFA.”

“It is hard to understand the reason behind the masses pointing a finger at me saying I might undergo prosecution. Why aren’t they talking about the other players? 


“As far as I know, my team had talks with SAFA and both parties discussed the situation. There has been no word from the parties at the top about me not following procedure as yet. So it is confusing to hear about such rumours.”
