Rosslee was placed on gardening leave late last week, with assistant coach Wilfred Mugeyi taking charge for the Telkom Knockout victory over Bloemfontein Celtic.

The 44-year-old was absent from training on Monday, October 6 which only heightened expectation that he will indeed by sacked by the KwaZulu-Natal outfit.

However, Zwane says that no decision has been made, with Rosslee set to meet the club's management later in the week, and that he did not attend training as he was confronted by angry fans last week while trying to prepare for the fixture against Celtic.

"Nothing has been decided on the future of Craig Rosslee," Zwane told Goal.

"As you know, he still the head coach and we wanted to protect him after the incident involving our supporters.

"I cannot say the writing is on the wall or not, because that hasn't been discussed by the club. It is only when we have met the coach that we can be in a position to say what's the way forward.

"I'm not sure when the management will sit down with the coach, but before the end of this week," he added.
