Gaba absence is not to do with injury

South African based striker was axed  from  coach Rommy van Geneudgen’s squad for the visit of Lesotho in a match which ened 1-1.

He expressed shock that he was not part of the team.

“I was told that I was ruled out because I was injured  yet  I didn’t have any injury at all, at all,” said  Mhango said.

Flames team manager James Sangala said Gaba was limping during training, meaning he was feeling pain.

But the striker downplayed the situation, saying he suffed “ a small knock” and was fit to play.

Gabadinho, who helped Bidvest Wits win a double last season—the Premier Soccer League (PSL)  and MTN8—is currently serving a six-match ban for spitting at an opponent in a league match.
