Nedbank Cup

Billiat: Supporters Push Me To New Heights

Mamelodi Sundowns playmaker Khama Billiat has credited his supporters after another man-of-the-match performance.
 
Billiat was instrumental to the Brazilians' victory on Saturday as they beat Mbombela United 3-1 in the Nedbank Cup last 16.
 
The Zimbabwean praised their opposition's efforts after the game and revealed that people who believe in him help him reach greater heights as a player.
 
He said: "We knew it wasn't going to be easy for us, but we worked hard as a team. 
 
"The coach told us, if it wasn't going to come early in the game we must just keep pushing, and this is what we did. 
 
"This team (Mbombela) always pushes to the end. They are not an easy side to play against."
 
When asked about his successful season and whether he could improve even further, Billiat added: "I look at it positively. If people believe in me, I can do even better than I always do. It gives me courage to push to the limits."
