Sikhakhane was unceremoniously dumped from Chippa United earlier this year, after the Eastern Cape club decided to appoint Ernst Middendorp as its new coach.

While there was considerable criticism about the manner in which the transition was handled, Sikhakhane appears to have moved on and is already plotting his professional future.
