Modise was spotted by Phakaaathi training with the rest of the team at Chloorkop on Monday, but Mosimane insists that he is out.
“Teko has not recovered fully from his hamstring injury, so he is out,” said Mosimane in Durban on Tuesday.
Also doubtful for the final is captain Ramahlwe Mphahlele and midfielder Themba Zwane, who are said to have not fully recovered from the quadricep muscle and groin injuries respectively.
The good news for the Brazilians is that Keagan Dolly didn’t pick up any injuries in the Caf Under-23 Africa Cup of Nations in Senegal and is ready for the Chiefs clash.
“Keagan is tired, he played all games, he travelled for 18 hours and he hasn’t had any training sessions. He has not trained with us since coming back, but he will train with us this afternoon (Tuesday),” said Mosimane.
The Telkom Knockout final is set to take place at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Wednesday at 6pm.
