Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Jabu Pule has not had his suspension lifted by the club despite making an appearance at the clubs Naturena training headquarters.
This is according to the clubs PRO Putco Mafani who rubbished a report on Kickoff Online which suggested Pule is back.
"I saw Jabu but he came here in his private capacity. However he remains suspended, said Mafani on Friday.
He added: He did not see his bosses but we have had contact with him now. He still has to see the team manager Bobby Motaung and coach Ted Dumitru.
Mafani said the player did not reveal anything else regarding his whereabouts over the past five days.
"Only his bosses can ask him where he was and he will face the disciplinary committee after seeing them," added Mafani.
Pule, who has a long history of discipline problems, failed to show for last weekends Absa Cup first round clash with Sundowns.
He was subsequently suspended indefinitely by the club, without pay.
Earlier, Chiefs chairman Kaizer Motaung published his thoughts on Pules disappearance on the clubs official website, www.kaizerchiefs.com.
Motaung said he regretted that Pule was again dominating news headlines for all the wrong reasons.
We have given him our complete support in the past and have tried to help him, but just cant seem to get it right, lamented Chincha Guluva.
Motaung confirmed that the clubs wayward son would appear before the clubs disciplinary committee for breaking the rules and not honouring a camp and, subsequently, missing an important cup match.
He said the player had been issued with a letter notifying him of his appearance before the DC but had not yet responded to it.
I must stress that Jabu has also not made himself available for training. We are doing our best in trying to ascertain his location, but this shouldnt be necessary in the first place, as he is a professional and, thus, should behave like one.
