Cape Town - Chippa United coach Roger Sikhakhane has vehemently denied any wrongdoing after being suspended by the Port Elizabeth outfit.

Sikhakhane has been placed on gardening leave after being accused of three separate offences by the club, including being under the influence of alcohol while on duty.

Explaining the series of events that led to his suspension, Sikhakhane told Soccer Laduma: "I got an email yesterday (Monday) around three o'clock mentioning that (suspension).

"The email was from Chippa United. Look, I was not supposed to be discussing the charges that have been laid against me. It was an internal thing.

"But because they (Chippa) went to the media and discussed it, I will give my side of the story. They say there have been allegations that I was smelling of liquor at work.

"The second charge is that I came late from my weekend off in Durban. The third one is that I had a fight with the team manager (Marks Totwana), before the game against Mthatha Bucks.

"But you see that all those things are not valid. It seems as if there are personal issues between me and the CEO of the club (Lukhanyo Mzinzi).

"If you can confirm with the team manager he will tell you that, 'Roger was not drunk. Roger was not smelling of alcohol.'

Sikhakhane further stated that he is not bothered by the accusations and won't allow anybody to bring him down.

"They have to prove all these things to me. I'm fine because I know that the charges against me are not true. They can create more stories."
