Kaizer Chiefs' wayward midfield star Jabulani Mendu is set to face the club's Disciplinary Committee after failing to arrive for training ahead of Chiefs' clash with Moroka Swallows two weeks ago.
Mendu who seems to have a disregard of Kaizer Chiefs's rules, joined Kaizer Chiefs from Swallows last season and since then, his talents has been over-shadowed by his disciplinary problems.
'S-Curl' has had to play second fiddle to John 'Shoes' Moshoeu and Tenashe Nengomashe this season as the pair formed a highly in impressive midfield partnership, providing the platform for the team to go on and win the league title.
Moshoeu might decide to call an end to his playing career before next season, but if he does Mendu is likely to face competition for his place in the team from Gert Schalwyk, who is reported to have signed from Wits University.
Coach Ted Dumitru is not happy with Mendu's behaviour as he says it disrupts his, and the whole team's preparations.
"What Mendu did affected the technical side of the team and I am not happy with that because I need all my players when we are training," Dumitru told SASoccer365.com on Monday.
"I am very happy with what the team management are doing to try and find out why Mendu missed that training session when he knew how important it was to everyone at Chiefs."
Dumitru says that he is happy to leave the matter up to the club's Disciplinary Committee, preferring to concentrate on the playing aspect of the game himself.
"As the coach, I am only involved on the technical side and the team manager Bobby Moutang is busy try to put the midfielder in line with all the other players at Chiefs and I think that Mendu will see that he was in the wrong side of the club rules and I hope that it is the last time that he will miss training," said the fuming Dumitru.
When the former Swallows midfielder missed training, he phoned the club and said that he was at the bank sorting-out his account but when the club management investigated, they found out that the player was busy buying a car instead of coming to training.
This is the second time that Mendu has been found on the wrong side of Amakhosi's rules. He was once asked to face the club's disciplinary committee for not respecting his team-mates.
