Billiat opens up: I’ll never be happy


Kaizer Chiefs forward Khama Billiat has opened up on his performances this season and has explained why he will “never be happy”.

Chiefs are flying high at the top of the Absa Premiership table, holding a 10-point lead over reigning champions Mamelodi Sundowns, after 11 games played this season.

Amakhosi have proven the team to beat thus far as they also find themselves in the last four of the Telkom Knockout, eliminating rivals Orlando Pirates in the previous round.

Coach Ernst Middendorp has tried various attacking combinations this season, with Samir Nurkovic, Leonardo Castro and Billiat having shown strong prospects thus far.

However, the Zimbabwean international has not quite hit the sort of form he has previously been known for, scoring just one goal in 10 appearances in the league and cup this season.

The 29-year-old has since admitted he is not entirely satisfied with his contribution thus far but emphasises that what matters most at the moment is the team’s results.

“Obviously I’ll never be happy [with my performance]. I always want to do better; I always want to contribute as much as I can, but I’m happier when the team is doing well,” said Billiat.

“When everyone is scoring goals from different angles, it gives us more depth. At this moment, I don’t think it would be fair to be selfish and look at how I’m doing.

“The team is doing well; I look at how well we’re doing, and I just want to contribute in a positive way that helps the team win as many games as we can. It’s not about me.”
