Jomo Cosmos boss Jomo Sono says the club swiftly sent striker Lindokuhle Mtshali back to Orlando Pirates after discovering the youngster has a contract with the Soweto giants.
Sono in June disclosed Mtshali and midfielder Sicelo Mkhize had been recruited to his team following spells at Real Kings.
However, Mtshali has since returned to Bucs, and Sono insists there was never any dispute with the Buccaneers over the player's services.
"He [Mtshali] was here, but he is a Pirates player. So we sent him back immediately when we discovered he belonged to Pirates," Sono tells KickOff.com.
"He hasn't been here for the last three weeks. We made it clear to him that if he has signed something with Pirates then he should go back.
"I want to make it clear that we never had any dispute or something with Pirates over the boy. The person who is spreading these lies, maybe he is trying to be our spokesperson because we don't have a spokesperson at Cosmos."
