Cape Town - Cape Town City captain Lebogang Manyama has been dropped from the MTN8 semi-final match-day squad to face Bidvest Wits after a bust-up with head coach Benni McCarthy.
Manyama, who was voted as the PSL's Player of the Season and Player's Player of the Season is known to be in favour of a move away from Cape Town to Mamelodi Sundowns.
McCarthy, who has started his debut season as a head coach with three wins out of three will be hoping the bust-up with his club captain won't affect his team's performance in Sunday's semi-final fixture against the Clever Boys.
Sport24 reported that City boss John Comitis believes that Manyama would rather move to Europe than Masandawana, who've shown an interest in his services.
"My intention is to keep the entire squad together as far as possible," Comitis told reporters.
"We live in a business environment and we understand that, but there is no intention of me offloading any players.
"If there is an offer from Europe, only because it gives a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to the player, then I will consider it. Quite simple, I’ve said to Lebo that: ‘I’m certainly trying to find you a good club overseas, because you deserve the break.’
"It's got to be a realistic offer. Failing that he is still young, 26, and he's able to give me another good year and still go overseas."
Kick off is at 15:30.
