Weekend newspaper reports claimed that Motaung and Komphela were seen dining together in a Chinese restaurant, further fuelling claims that Vladimir Vermezovic’s contract would not be renewed at the end of the season.
However, Motaung denies meeting with Komphela, telling his club’s official website: “Maybe I have a twin who goes to Chinese restaurants.
“There is no truth to the reports that the Club is in talks with Steve Komphela. The reports might be aimed at distracting Steve and Free State Stars. We remain behind the current technical team and we are on track for challenging for both the Nedbank Cup and the League.”
Meanwhile, Vermezovic reveals that Jimmy Tau will return to action in a fortnight.
“Jimmy was three weeks behind other players as he reported back late from camp following the passing away of his sister. He has been working on a program and should be back in a week.”
