Modise: I followed procedure

Johannesburg - Teko Modise says he is baffled by calls for him to face disciplinary action for failing to honour a call-up to the national team.    

According to the Football411 website, the Sundowns midfielder was included in the Bafana Bafana squad for season-ending friendlies against Australia and New Zealand, but declared himself unavailable, citing prior engagements.

The playmaker has refuted claims he did not follow proper withdrawal procedure, and insists the whole process was handled by his club on his behalf.

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

The 31-year-old is also frustrated by what he sees as one rule for him and another for the other players who were also called up but pulled out of the squad.

He added: “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.”
