The representative of Khama Billiat has revealed the reason behind the player’s controversial Instagram post at the weekend.
Billiat posted a cryptic message on his official Instagram account a few days ago, however, the post has since been taken down by the playmaker.
Billiat’s agent, Mike Ngobeni from M Sport Management revealed to Soccer Laduma yesterday that his player is under a lot of pressure with the media regarding the next step in his professional football career.
The 27-year-old recently helped the Zimbabwean national team to lift the COSAFA Cup in Polokwane last weekend, adding a second piece of silverware to his trophy cabinet for the year.
Now, the player will direct all his focus on making the next best decision for him in his professional football career, as his contract with Sundowns nears its end.
Amidst speculation about where Billiat will be playing his football next season, his representative, Ngobeni has since opened up to the Siya crew, revealing that Billiat has grown frustrated at the number of phone calls he has been receiving from other football agents and his Instagram post was therefore not directed at any club or coach.
“Look, this is subject to what was on the Instagram post, what was on Instagram was not meant for any club or any coach, it was meant for our colleagues in the industry. At the end of the day, he is so frustrated by other agents who are offering him things and lecturing him about his life and talk bad about other players and how they can manage him better. So he is just trying to say, he is not there for that, he gets frustrated because these guys keep on phoning and promising him things. So we are trying to say that it was not meant to any club, to any coach, to any sort of technical team, it was meant to our colleagues in the industry such as agents,” Ngobeni told the Siya crew.
