Sikhakhane said the reports were not true, however he admits that he and his friends went out the previous night and that they overslept the following morning.
“I am still angry about those reports as they have also affected my family. How can I come to training drunk, my brother? I live to support my family through soccer and so I would not do something that would jeopardise my career.
“We had training in the morning, so why would I be drinking at eight o’clock in the morning. I woke up early to attend training, so yes, maybe my eyes were red, but to say I was drinking is not true because I respect the team and my job.”
Mzizi remained cagey when Kick Off questioned him about the reports.
“Don’t ask me if I came to training drunk, ask those people who told you the story,” he replied.
Phunya Sele Sele PRO Sello Nduna refused to discuss the matter, saying only that it was being dealt with internally at the club.
