Former Kaizer Chiefs player Robson Muchichwa has explained how the presence of Keagan Dolly shows why Khama Billiat needs to have the right people around him.
Billiat is slowly rediscovering his best form this season and it seems the presence of pre-season signing Dolly has brought back the spark he was missing in recent campaigns at Amakhosi.
The 31-year-old, who recently called time on his international career with Zimbabwe, has found the back of the net five times in all competitions this term and has topped that up with five assists. He and Dolly, a player he has previously formed deadly partnerships with at Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns, are currently terrorising opposition defenders and Amakhosi supporters must be licking their lips at the thought of the damage they are still going to cause for teams in the PSL going forward.
"His partner in crime is with him now. Keagan Dolly has played his part in trying to bring Khama back. So, now it's up to Khama to keep bringing himself back. It counts when you have the right people around you. Players like Khama are game winners, so if you don't have the right people around him, it becomes a problem for a player like him. You need the right people around him, like what was happening at Sundowns. He had the right support around him and he was buzzing. That plays a part. So, I feel there hasn't been the right people around him at Chiefs," Muchichwa tells the Siya crew.
"He is finding his feet, but he is not yet fully there. He still has some way to go and he still needs to work harder to get there, because that's not the Khama we know. The Khama we know wins the game alone. I am seeing glimpses of Khama and let's hope he will hold onto his recent form. He needs to focused and think about football. The Khama I know focuses on football and he knows what he wants."
