Why Billiat wants Musona reunion


Kaizer Chiefs star Khama Billiat says he would love to reunite with Knowledge Musona once again in the near future.

Musona and some seasoned players were not part of the Zimbabwe squad that recently took part in the FIFA World Cup qualifier against Djibouti, following reports that ZIFA ordered new national team coach Joey Antipas not to select them.

They were accused of being ring leaders in a fight for bonuses and allowances during the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Although he missed the first leg, Billiat was called up to the Warriors squad for the second leg and made the difference by scoring the winner that helped Zimbabwe win the reverse fixture 3-1 to go through on 3-2 on aggregate.

Billiat says former Amakhosi striker Musona, who is currently with Belgian giants Anderlecht, brings the best out of him when they both play for their country.

"It is the greatest combination I have ever had since I was young, that also helps me grow as a player," Musona told Zimbabwean publication The Herald.

"Seeing him and stealing some ideas of football, watching him play, how he goes into the pockets and he is calm in front of goal and in the box, it has helped me a lot.

"For me, to see him doing that, it also gives me something to continue pushing harder, and doing a little bit of what he is doing to help my game.

"He is a great player who can score from any angle and it is a motivation on the field that he can do something any time. It brings less pressure on you and you can play with a lot of joy and relax."
