Hlompho Kekana has reportedly been in the sin bin for the past four matches. According to Sowetan LIVE, Pitso Mosimane was not being honest when he claimed to have rested Kekana the past couple of matches.
The publication found out that the Mamelodi Sundowns star had been slapped with a four-match ban by the Confederation of African Football (Caf) after he shoved a match official.
The incident took place during a Caf Champions League preliminary round against AS Otoho of Congo Brazzaville in August.
However, the Brazilians managed to keep the ban on the down-low until acting general manager Yogesh Singh confirmed to Sowetan LIVE that the 34-year-old had served a ban.
According to Singh, Kekana was banned for four matches and he has already served the punishment. Thus, he will be available for Saturday's match.
