Orlando Pirates midfielder Steve Lekoelea could face disciplinary action from the club after publicly criticising coach Roy Barretos methods.
The 24-year-old expressed his disappointment at being left out of the squad through the media, while also claiming that Baretto didnt like him.
However, he could now be set for more Pirates problems, with a club spokesman confirming he will face action.
We are not going to tolerate this kind of behaviour, he told the Buccaneers official website.
We are right now focusing and concentrating on winning the league and then Steve will have to answer for his irresponsible utterances.
He knows the club's rules and the way to address one's problems, but we view his behaviour in such a serious light that he would be dealt with when the time is right.
He cannot be allowed to insult the coach in that manner and get away with it.
The former Bafana Bafana player has hardly featured this season as Pirates look set to wrap up the Premier Soccer League title.
