DURBAN – Khama Billiat’s absence from Kaizer Chiefs’ opening two Absa Premiership matches has served to fuel the off-season rumours that the Zimbabwean is on his way out of the club.
But coach Ernst Middendorp said at the weekend that nothing could be further from the truth.
“Khama Billiat, the chairman of the club (Kaizer Motaung), the marketing department and the technical team is aware he came back from the Africa Cup of Nations with an issue on his left knee,” Middendorp said during the post-match media conference of Chiefs’ league success over Black Leopards at the Moses Mabhida Stadoum.on Saturday night.
“He joined us after three days of our pre-season. It was on July 16 and he stayed for until the 18th. We then travelled to Botswana and he didn’t go with us.”
