Black Leopards and Edwin Gyimah have resolved their issues and the defender has resumed training with the club ahead of their first match of the season.
Gyimah went AWOL immediately after Leopards’ 3-0 defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns in their final match of the Premiership season, before they could play the play-offs which they eventually won to retain their topflight status.
The 29-year-old was not part of the squad that returned for pre-season as he was awaiting an internal disciplinary hearing process.
Club CEO Moudy Mudzielwana has since confirmed that the Ghanaian is remorseful for his behaviour and the cub has accept his apology.
“Gyimah is back in the team, obviously he is still training alone based on the fact that he was only recently tested for Covid-19 and we didn’t want him to just jump into the team,” Mudzielwana told journalists during their media briefing on Wednesday.
“We understood what happened then, because obviously everybody have their own moment. He understood that he has made a mistake and the mistake that he did is not a football matter, so we thought in the field he gives us more so we forgave him and we have him back in the club.
“The disciplinary action is internal, we obviously had to discipline him just like anybody else. We have a disciplinary structure but we will not necessarily divulge what we have done to him, but he is apologetic,” he said.
Gyimah is likely to be part of the team that will take on SuperSport United in their first match of the 2020/21 DStv Premiership season at Lucas Moripe on Saturday.
