Orlando Pirates have refused to comment on reports linking their player Gabadinho Mhango with any wrongdoing.
Contradicting reports have surfaced regarding the Bucs star, with a nightclub disputing reports in local media suggesting that Mhango failed to settle his bill in a nightclub at the weekend.
According to Sunday World, the Malawian international allegedly spent Saturday night in Club Propaganda in Pretoria and was locked in after he failed to settle a R26 000 bill after he bought strangers drinks. It is alleged that the forward admitted to having no money to settle the bill, although he reportedly let go after he reached an agreement with the nightclub’s manager without involving the police.
However, Club Propaganda has refuted the reports. They stated on their official Facebook page, “We have never experienced negative challenges of whatsoever, from the above-mentioned guest. Our relationship remains healthy, intact, we look forward to continuous hosting of our esteemed guest and countless visitors from all walks of life.”
Contacted for comment, Pirates administrator Floyd Mbele was in no mood to discuss the matter.
“How do I comment if someone doesn’t pay their bill at a restaurant? What do I need to say? What do you want me to say about anybody that doesn’t pay their bill in a restaurant? I am saying to you what do you want me to say about somebody who does not pay a bill at a petrol station or at a restaurant?” said Mbele.
Insiders have informed the Siya crew that Mhango reported late for training on Sunday and was pulled aside by management, however, the reason for his late arrival has not been confirmed.
