Saez had expected the Valencia players to attend the meeting along with Athletic Bilbao winger Joseba Etxeberria after the trio pulled out of Spain's forthcoming friendly with Ecuador through injury.
However, whilst the Bilbao star was present and had his knock certified by doctors, Albelda and Rodriguez failed to show.
"Etxeberria has fulfilled his obligation but the other two players have not," declared Saez.
"I don't know whose fault it is. If you don't present yourself if you are called up by the national team there can be an investigation and you could be suspended for a month."
Saez has already called up replacements for the trio in the shape of Barcelona utility man Gabri, Real Sociedad midfielder Javier de Pedro and Deportivo La Coruna midfielder Sergio Gonzalez.
