Phala is alleged to indulge in bouts of heavy drinking, which tends to have a negative impact on his performances on the pitch.

According to a well-placed Phakaaathi source, former Matsatsantsa coach Stuart Baxter was close to sending Phala packing as he could no longer tolerate his antics.

In July, reports emerged of Phala allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend in a pub in Alexandra.

Phala responded through his team, SuperSport, and denied the allegations.
