In South Africa despite Anthony Laffor’s financial obligation to SuperSport United as a result of a fine after missing training last weekend, the club officials say there are no plans to sell him during the January transfer window. The captain of the Liberia National team failed to pitch for training on Sunday morning, only hours after a defeat at the hands of Orlando Pirates on Saturday night.
Laffor was brought before the club’s disciplinary structure and handed an undisclosed fine. He is not available to play for the League leaders in their next match against Mamelodi Sundowns on December 16. This is because he picked up a third caution of the season, and has an automatic one-match suspension.
It is not the first time that Laffor has clashed with Coach Gavin Hunt, who had ordered in his players for Sunday morning training after the disappointment of being handed a 3-0 thrashing on Saturday night.
