DURBAN – Having been part of the successful and all-conquering Mamelodi Sundowns team, Khama Billiat would be the first to understand why Kaizer Chiefs need to get back to winning ways and restore their cup kings tag they once had.
Undoubtedly, the hardworking attacking midfielder would have been one of the Chiefs staff most affected when his club failure to lift a title last term.
Chiefs’ continued poor run last season gave rise to the rumours that the Zimbabwean may be entertaining overtures from his old team, especially after Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane offered mumbled responses when asked whether he wanted “his son” back in the fold.
Billiat joined Amakhosi at the start of last season from Sundowns on a free transfer. His disappearance from training at Naturena Village also served to fuel the speculation. But after the transfer window closed on Monday, his agent Mike Ngobeni of M-Sport Management, has emerged to explain what has been going behind the scenes about the player.
“You know I’ve been making it clear that Khama is not going anywhere. Khama is happy at Chiefs and he still wants to win trophies with the club and that’s why he decided to stay,” Ngobeni explained.
