Former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Linda “Mercedes Benz” Buthelezi has said Khama Billiat must go suggesting that Amakhosi can sign local talented players as his replacement.
Khama Billiat who is one of the highest-earning players in the South African league, has failed to replicate his form at Ajax Cape Town and at Mamelodi Sundowns since moving to Amakhosi in 2018.
He has only managed two goals in 11 starts this season as he spent the good part of the 2020-21 season on the sidelines due to injury. Buthelezi said:
_Hey, Billiat must go my brother, he is doing nothing for us. “I’m a Chiefs person mina, he must go. I don’t think Chiefs signed him because they wanted to invest in him in a sense of selling him overseas. If that was the case we would have seen it by now__It’s not like we don’t have such players in this country. If you can go to Baroka, they play good football, they have talented boys there, even Black Leopards have good players there. You can sign a few of them here and they will be very serious once they get here.__So he must leave so that we can promote a few youngsters. The coach must be allowed to sign three or four players of his choice, and add another three from development._
Khama Billiat’s contract expires at the end of this season but Amakhosi have since said the Zimbabwean international is going nowhere.
The 30-year-old is reportedly under the radar of Al Ahly, Zamalek and Pyramids, all Egyptian clubs.
