Underfire Kaizer Chiefs player Khama Billiat’s mother Rosa Billiat is reportedly not amused by the age cheat tags levelled against her son and reportedly went on to produce immunisation cards to The Herald to prove that Billiat is indeed 30 years old.
Dispelling the tags, Rosa reportedly said:
My child never cheated, when it comes his age, at any stage in his career. I kept all my baby cards so that my children, when they grow up, they will show their kids.
Rosa went on to question Khama’s Coach’s professionalism and said:
But, what I don’t understand is how a professional coach (Ngubane), who players look up to, can say such about my son.
Maybe, he needs to look himself in the mirror and see what he has achieved, as a coach, because I don’t believe any good coach would really say such things about a player. How will he expect players to respect him, as a mentor and a gaffer.
Billiat’s mother said Khama will recover from the dry spell because he went through a similar phase at Sundowns and emerged victorious at the end:
I remember at one time, at Sundowns, there was talk from fans that “Khama must go and Pitso (Mosimane) must go” but, after that, he fully recovered from an injury. He went on to win awards, together with his coach. So, I have seen this before, and know that it happens in football and it shall pass. I am not really worried.
Khama recently switched managers and ditched his South African Manager for his childhood friend Vokal who manages musician.
