Why Billiat wants to stay with Chiefs


Zimbabwean star Khama Billiat has finally made a decision on his future with Kaizer Chiefs.

The 28-year-old attacker is believed to have turned down multi-million rand offers from African giants like Raja Casablanca (Morocco) and Zamalek (Egypt), as well as from Angolan side Petro de Luanda.

According to the player's representative Mike Ngobeni, Billiat's fine individual performances for the Warriors at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt is what earned him the interest, even though Zimbabwe were knocked out in the group stage.

The fact that Billiat could not win anything in his first season at Chiefs is thought to be the main reason he has decided to stay at least one more year with the Soweto giants, even if he will not be involved in continental club football for the first time in a while.

"He is happy there bro," Ngobeni tells KickOff.com.

"Nothing much to say except he is happy to stay at Kaizer Chiefs for another season. He wants to win something with Kaizer Chiefs."

Although the 2018/19 season was not a good one for Amakhosi as they finished outside the top eight, Billiat was one of the top performers, scoring 14 times.
