Cape Town - The South African Football Association CEO Dennis Mumble has revealed that May Mahlangu will not be forgiven for his sudden withdrawal from the national squad.
According to Soccer Laduma, the late withdrawal by Mahlangu from the Bafana Bafana squad and the manner in which it was done was unacceptable and the player will now not be considered for future selection reveals Mumble.
The Sweden-based forward failed to pitch in Durban where Bafana is preparing for a crunch Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sudan at the weekend, citing fatigue as the reason.
“We will not consider him for selection anymore because of that attitude,” said Mumble.
“No, we won't forgive him. You can't be tired for your country and we have made it clear in the past to all players that you can't decide for yourself.
“When we received a letter from the player; we thought it wasn't true and we phoned him and he confirmed that he wrote the letter and that he was tired. That's unacceptable and not forgivable.
Bafana Bafana take on Sudan at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday, November 15.
