The African Champions League final, scheduled for July 17 at the Mohamed V stadium in Casablanca in Morocco, between Al Ahly of Cairo and Kaizer Chiefs of South Africa, will be a great opportunity to convince Khama Billiat. The Zimbabwe striker has never performed under the Chiefs colors since his arrival in 2018. And despite being the highest paid player in South Africa with a salary of € 440,000 per year.
The Kaizer Chiefs will need a great day’s Khama Billiat to dominate Cairo’s Al Ahly. The Zimbabwe international is expected to bring all his experience to the Champions League final on 17 July. Although he hasn’t played since April due to a broken leg.
But the striker knows the coronation path well. Because with Mamelodi Sundowns he had already raised the trophy in 2016.
Suffering from repeated injuries, Khama Billiat hasn’t given the full measure of his talent since signing for the Chiefs in 2018. South Africa’s highest-paid player still struggles to justify his € 440,000-a-year salary. Winning the Champions League would therefore be a great rematch for the player, currently on the transfer list.
He knows this and wants to give everything to put the Kaizer Chiefs on the list of African champions clubs. “I have already experienced a final (with Tramonti). And I know how difficult it is (to win the Champions League). I know how good it can feel when you win»Confides the player in newzimbabwe.com.
“I’m in the right place”
Despite his lack of efficiency with only 2 goals in 18 Premier League games this season, Billiat still believes in his talent and wants to play the trigger against Al Ahly. “I’m in the right place at the right time. I’m surrounded by the right people, the right management and I’m in the right club “, he argues. “I’m happy to be here (to Kaizer Chiefs). Can’t wait for the team to see him (from the competition) so that we have good memories with this great club “, Add the Warrior.
He will therefore have to come out with a great game if he is offered the opportunity to change his leaders’ minds. The latter, in fact, included him in the transfer list. Goal: get rid of the highest salary of the club and South Africa.
