Sipho Mbule absence in action is due to disciplinary actions

Mbule may be one of the well-known figures in Kaitano Tembo’s team, but after a long absence from action dating back to November 2021, he recently featured in his first match of the year, and some thought it may mark a turning point for him.

Yet, Matthews revealed last week that discipline issues were the reason behind the player being absent from training this week, and now, in an interview on the METROFMSA Sports Show, the CEO reiterated that Mbule is not in the right head space, was unreliable and would not feature again for the club.

“He hasn’t been reliable, not to himself or his teammates. And quite frankly, we’d rather play without Sipho and perhaps finish a couple places lower in the league, but have a team that is unified, that is disciplined, fights for each other and respects each other.”

He added that it was suspected that Mbule may well be trying to force a move away from the club.

Previously, his agent Mike Makaab said everything regarding Mbule’s future will be clearer by May, but it’s clear that he will leave SuperSport at the end of the season.

Recently, former Bafana player Alton Meiring said out-of-favour Sipho Mbule needed to show mental strength rather than just sulk.

“Mbule just needs to keep working because there is always reward for putting in the hard work,” former Sundowns and South Africa player Aton Meiring has now told KickOff.com.

“He (Mbule) must still keep working on earning that move that he desires the same way he has done in raising the interest in the past. This is his career and so he must be first to show the desire.

“The player might not be happy, but the club cannot stop him from the joy of working towards what he needs for his career. He has a contract and so must honour it by working the same way he has done all these years.

“He must also look into his lifestyle instead of feeling like a victim in this situation. It is up to how strong he is in this situation.

“He must be the first at training and last to leave so that he sends a message to the club about that his mind is up to it.”
