'Billiat must be allowed to make mistakes'


Kaizer Chiefs legend Gardner Seale says for the club's star player Khama Billiat to produce his best he needs to be allowed to make mistakes on the field.

In the 2-2 draw with Golden Arrows on Saturday the Zimbabwean international played one of his best games in a long time as he looks to return to the heights of years gone by.

Seale believes there is only one way to get the best out of Billiat.

"Allow him to make mistakes man, allow him to make mistakes, don't try to limit him," Seale tells KickOff.com.

"On Saturday, for me it wasn't about winning, but once you play like that then the symptoms of winning will come.

"After such a long time I think Saturday's performance is what made Chiefs sign him [in the first place]. I think what they've seen in him is [that kind of] performance. He was absolutely great."

"Besides Billiat, the overall performance was just okay. I think they showed character. When they lost the ball they made sure they got it back quickly. Once you have that attitude I think half the battle is won you see.

"So Billiat was also doing the same, like I said his brilliance was brilliant. Obviously he cannot play alone but that combination we saw at Sundowns, it was there. The understanding with Castro was visible as well."
