Orlando Pirates midfielder Teko Modise’s manager Jazzman Mahlakgane dismisses media reports that the Bafana Bafana star has gone Awol amid allegations of being at loggerheads with Bucs coach Ruud Krol.
According to story on one of the local football websites all is not well between Krol and Modise with the latter being said to be no longer following the coaches instructions and demanding a position in central midfield rather than playing wide where has been operating throughout the season.
Modise missed the Soweto Derby against Kaizer Chiefs at Orlando Stadium on Saturday which has sparked some lot of questions amongst Pirates supporters about the absence of the star midfielder.
Speaking to KickOff.com Modise's manager Jazzman Mahlakgane says Modise was carrying an injury hence his absence during the Absa Premiership match against AmaKhosi in Soweto on Saturday.
"All those reports saying Teko has gone Awol are not true as the boy is carrying an ankle injury.
"I am surprised how people can come with their own stories yet the game was on TV and everybody saw Teko limping off the field due to the injury against Maritzburg United."
