Billiat: Chiefs will always be big

Premiership

Billiat arrived at Naturena at the start of the season and has done wonders in contributing towards restoring the club's name as a force within the PSL.

The 28-year-old forward has managed five goals and four assists in 12 matches thus far, and has been instrumental in Amakhosi's return of 18 goals scored.

He deservedly picked up the prize for Absa Premiership Player of the Month for September, during which Chiefs managed an impressive three-game winning streak that subsequently led to Giovanni Solinas picking up the Coach of the Month accolade in a clean sweep for the club on Thursday.

While the signs have looked promising now that the coach and his charges are starting to find their footing, the Zimbabwean international insists Chiefs have not lost their pedigree with its recent struggles as he downplayed his individual contribution.

"I think whatever happened before with the club doesn't mean the club is not big anymore; the club is always big," said Billiat.

"The club has always been doing well, and we never lose respect for the club. What's happening now, the club has done bigger before.

"So, we just have to come and respect that and follow the way that the club wants us to work, and we're just here to work for the club and do better.

"We're not here to change anything, we're here to see if we can actually fit into Kaizer Chiefs' style, because the club is always bigger than us."
