Cape Town - Axed
Chippa United coach, Roger Sikhakhane, has hit out at the Port Elizabeth outfit
after he was officially replaced by Ernst Middendorp.

Last week it was reported that Sikhakhane's future at the
Chilli Boys was in doubt, and the Premier Soccer League side have since, with
former Bloemfontein Celtic tactician Middendorp handed the reins.
Sikhakhane, though, has been left fuming at the decision,
given the fact he turned Chippa from relegation candidates at the beginning of
the season into top-eight contenders at the half-way stage.
"There is nothing to hide: I have been fired,"
Sikhakhane is quoted as saying by KickOff.
"I am only going to meet with (Chippa CEO) Peter
Koutroulis on Wednesday.
"It will only be fair that I release my official
statement on Thursday.
"Football sometimes is not fair - taking the team from
bottom with four points to 22 points."
