Johannesburg - Daine Klate is said to be "upset" at his exclusion from the Bafana Bafana camp that left for Germany on Monday.

The left winger was in the squad that attended a specialised training campaign in Brazil, but when Carlos Alberto Parreira named the team for Germany, Klate was overlooked.

And his club coach Gavin Hunt revealed the player's disappointment in Groenkloef on Thursday, after a workout in preparation for Sunday's Nedbank Cup clash against Kaizer Chiefs.

Asked what Klate could bring to the game, Hunt disclosed that the Port-Elizabeth star is not in the right frame of mind, telling "His mindset is not good. We have to try to build him up because he is upset.

"It is unfortunate for the boy and I have said to him the only way to prove him (Parreira) wrong is to do well for the team in the next couple of games."

Turning his attention to the Chiefs clash, the Cape-born mentor says Amakhosi are the favourites to progress.

"If you look at their team at the moment I think they are a little bit more settled than we are, so, yes, Chiefs are obvious big favourites. They won the cup on the weekend and their team is settled," he concluded.
