Maphosa also confirmed last week that the club had “worked out something” with the players in question in order for everyone to be available for the trip.
The deals of Bernard Parker, Itumeleng Khune, Willard Katsande, Bruce Bvuma, Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Khama Billiat, Lebogang Manyama and Kgotso Moleko had all expired by the end of June
Head coach Stuart Baxter is also part of the traveling squad to Morocco, but Amakhosi are yet to confirm whether he has received his work permit on time to be on the sidelines or whether he will watch the game from the stands as he had done during the semi-finals.
