There were reports the pair was not in speaking terms with the outspoken coach.

The player has been dropped in the past three games, including the Soweto Derby that Chiefs lost 3-2 to Orlando Pirates last week

But the Zimbabwean international dismisses such reports on the team’s official website.

“There is no fight between myself and the boss. There is no beef. The Coach has made his decision about the players he wants to feature for games and the other guys have been given an opportunity. The media reports that we are not on speaking terms are not true,” Nengomasha said.

“I want to play in each and every game and I am disappointed that I did not feature in the past couple of games. This happens sometimes in football and for me I am going to continue working hard in training; something I have done throughout my career. The Club comes first and, as a professional, I respect the decision of the Technical Team. I will support any team that walks on the pitch because they are there playing for the badge and the fans.”

There have been reports of a rift between Vermezovic and senior players this season and Nengomasha is the latest said to be unhappy with the coach.

There have earlier been reports Vermezovic had a fight with such players as Jimmy Tau, Josta Dladla and Abia Nale.
