According to Dispatch Live, Malesela, 51, did not travel with the team that will play Bidvest Wits at Sisa Dukashe Stadium on Tuesday night.
Chilli Boys boss Chippa Mpengesi is quoted as saying: “This is painful to all of us, but unfortunately, it’s beyond our control. He felt the pain in his chest yesterday [Sunday] in training and went to see a doctor.
“I spoke to him and he told me about the pain but after an hour, I heard that his condition became serious and was taken to hospital. I think it’s something to do with his heart but I’m not sure, but it’s got to do with a heart condition.
“We are so sad and shocked by this but we can’t control God’s will. We wish him a speedy recovery.”
Assistant coach Mbuyiselo Sambu is expected to supervise the side against Wits in Mdantsane.
