Chiefs Send Out Billiat Update
Kaizer Chiefs have issued a statement regarding Khama Billiat today, suggesting that there’s no chance of him moving on from the club anytime soon.
Billiat was back in Ernst Middendorp’s side towards the end of last month after missing the first couple of games due to injury, and started the last game against Cape Town City as they came from behind to beat them 2-1 and retain their place on top of the Absa Premiership table.
The victory, however, was not without cost it seems, with the club now revealing that Billiat – a man who has been heavily linked with a sensational return to Mamelodi Sundowns – sustained a pelvic injury that could keep him out of action.
Chiefs have been very insistent regarding the Zimbabwean’s future as they insisted that he would not be sold to Masandawana (or anyone else), and their latest statement on Deadline Day seems to suggest that their standpoint has not changed.
A statement on the club’s official website read, “Billiat got a knock to his right pelvic bone during the Amakhosi’s 2-1 win in their away Absa Premiership encounter that took place last Tuesday against Cape Town City, he has had a scan done and it is unclear how long he needs to recover at this stage.”
While it hasn’t been stated today, Biliat’s injury also likely means that the attacker will be withdrawn from the Zimbabwe squad for their World Cup qualifier with Somalia.
