Pirates remain quiet on Vilakazi issue 16/06/04
Orlando Pirates are waiting to meet with Bennedict Vilakazi before commenting on allegations that the player has been using false identity documents.

Club Brand Manager Zodwa Khoza told the club's website that they intend getting to the bottom of the matter as soon as Vilakazi has returned from national duty.

"Obviously what was reported over the weekend is of great concern and we would like to get to the bottom of the matter," she said.

"So until we had spoken to the player, we will not be making any comments regarding the matter until the player returns from Bafana Bafana duty."

Vilakazi, who has been in inspirational form for the Sea Robbers this season, has been accused of using the identity documents of his younger brother, who is five years his junior.

Of great concern to Pirates is the fact that if found guilty, Vilakazi could face a lengthy ban from international and possibly even club football.

FIFA are currently investigating a similar case - Mohamedou Idrissou of Cameroon, who plays for Hanover in Germany, has also been accused of using false documents and could face a long ban.

What do you think of the matter? Should 'Tso' be involved in this weekend's World Cup qualifier against Ghana? Please e-mail your comments to ...
