Medeama will play against newly-crowned Absa Premiership Champions Mamelodi Sundowns in a playoff round of the Caf Confederations Cup.

Reports coming out of Ghana suggest that Swedish trainer absconded from training and two league game against Inter Allies and All Stars FC and that has been handed a travel ban as punishment for his conduct. However the club has come out to rubbish these reports.

“I don’t know where the reports are coming from. He is traveling with the team,” Chief Executive James Essilfie told

“We are focused on the game and don’t want to get distracted by such reports. It’s a total fabrication.”
