Cape Town – SAFA are undecided on whether to suspend Kaizer Chiefs left-back Tsepo Masilela for failing to honour his Bafana Bafana call-up.

The 30-year-old failed to show up to the Bafana camp as Kaizer Chiefs confirmed that he picked up an injury.

However, Bafana Bafana were demanding that Masilela report to training so that the national side can examine the left-backs injury and file a medical report.

According to KickOff, SAFA wrote a letter to the PSL to find out the reasoning for Masilela’s omission from Bafana camp was true or not.

“So far we are still waiting for the CEO [Dennis Mumble], once we have spoken to him we will be able to inform the media,” SAFA head of communications Dominic Chimhavi said.

Chiefs spokesperson Vina Maphosa says that the matter is in SAFA’s hands whether they want to take action or not.

Maphosa added: “On Friday we will release a match preview that says which players are injured or not, including Tsepo’s injury update.”

Amakhosi take on SuperSport United in a Absa Premiership fixture on Saturday, September 12.

Kick-off is at 18:00.
