Khama Billiat has spoken about his experience as a veteran member of a young Kaizer Chiefs team. At the end of June, the Chiefs made the decision to part ways with 12 players as they prepared to welcome new head coach Arthur Zwane.
Most of these players were either no longer under contract or far above the age of 30, leaving only older players like Itumeleng Khune (35), Eric Mathoho (32), Khama Billiat (31), and Sifiso Hlanti (32) to lead the team.
It must be difficult to be a mentor to the younger players if you haven't accomplished anything in the last six seasons. Despite his habit of relying solely on his own intellect, he must attend this particular gathering.
The day he decided to leave sudowns and join the 16-time defending champions of the indisputable macufe cup is a day he will never forget, and we know he still regrets it to this day.
To play for Kaizer Chiefs is a dream come true, and not just because of the trophies they've won.
You can drink draught beer all game long and yet be considered a member of the Kaizer Chiefs family.
Every single one of these athletes hopes to one day represent Kaizer Chiefs or Orlando Pirates.
Each and every one of those instructors hopes one day to be in charge of that organization and an integral part of that prestigious name. It's been nine years since the senior players last took home a trophy.
