Billiat Happy With Chiefs’ Start To The Season

Absa Premiership Man of the Match, Mamelodi Sundowns v Kaizer Chiefs, 4 August 2018

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 05, 2018 04:15 PM

Kaizer Chiefs’ Khama Billiat was happy with how his new side started the season, following their 1-1 draw with Mamelodi Sundowns.

The 2018/19 Absa Premiership season got underway on Saturday with a mouth-watering clash between the Brazilians and the Amakhosi.

Ramahlwe Mphahlele open the scoring for Chiefs before Ricardo Nascimento equalised from the penalty spot for Sundowns as the two sides settled for a share of the spoils.

Speaking after the match, Billiat was quick to thank the supporters and urged the Amakhosi fans to forget about the past three season which saw the club pick-up no major silverware.

“I want to thank everyone who came in numbers to support the team. I know it has been tough for the past three years, but it is water under the bridge. We are ready to start the league,” said Billiat told SuperSport..

“It is a 1-1 result and it was a tough match. Mamelodi Sundowns is a good team. We have done a lot of things that we wanted to do today against Sundowns and there is still room for improvements.

“It is really important to start on a high to take us through the league season.”

Billiat, though, admits that Chiefs were not at their best in front of goal and that is something that will have to improve if they are to challenge for the league title this season.

“We did not create as many chances as we wanted to, but there were moments that we could have taken our chances,” added the Amakhosi attacking midfielder.

“But it is a learning curve. We learn every day and we think positively, we are not too hard on ourselves. We take one game as it comes.”

The Hawks are reviving cases of fraud against Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung and his business associates, Herbert Theledi and Marius Grib, after they allegedly submitted fake documents in their company Lefika's bid to design Mbombela Stadium. Sunday World can exclusively reveal a meeting was held at the offices of Hawks' Brigadier Zama Basi in Pretoria on June 20, where a decision to resuscitate the case was taken. Those who attended the meeting included Advocate Patrick Nkuna of the Specialised Commercial Crime Unit and investigating officer Warrant Officer Mashudu Mashamba. Nkuna guided the police in their investigation on the cases and also led the prosecution against Motaung and his business associates. He was almost removed from the case after complaining he had received conflicting instructions from the NPA about whether the case was supposed to have been heard in the Mpumalanga High Court or regional court.
