Khama Billiat is a player who was groomed at the famous Ajax Cape Town youth academy before jetting off to Mamelodi Sundowns, where he grew from strength to strength in a team filled with stars.
Not many youngsters are fortunate enough to instantly make the grade at Chloorkop, because of the sheer nature of competition within the team. Billiat proved many wrong as he became one of, if not the best player in the squad at such a young age - and that in itself should earn the player more credit.
Many still believe that he could move abroad in the near future, as reports suggested not too long ago that French giants Lille could be interested in our star man.
In the 2010/2011 Premier Soccer League season, Billiat won the PSL Rookie of the Year award while at Ajax Cape Town, where he formed deadly partnership with the likes of Thulani Serero and Sameehg Doutie.
This season I feel he is ready for more awards, like the Player of the Season or Players Player of the Season title.
Let’s not forget that Billiat has scored 10 goals for the season already from an attacking midfield position, which is a tally more than some of the best strikers in the country! This is just another reason why I feel Billiat deserves more credit.
With that said, do you feel Billiat needs to be recognised more?
