That's what's probably happened. Roach has revealed himself not to be the most truthful of people (what with this whole recent JMM testing thing). It's ludicrous to suggest Khan's team would ask him to drop Pacquiao - as evident by Khan in that interview being surprised to hear such claims. Like you've said, it was probably:
Khan's dad: "You've got too many people you handle - Pacquiao, Chavez and all them guys."
Roach to media: "They told me to drop Pacquiao and Chavez"
