Zimbabwean forward Khama Billiat says he always wanted to play for a team with 'great history' like Kaizer Chiefs.
Billiat was voted Man of the Match in the inaugural Shell Helix Cup, despite ending up on the losing side against Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday.
The Zimbabwean, who was prized away from Sundowns, says he has always admired Chiefs from a distance and is grateful to the chairman, Kaizer Motaung.
“I want to thank God and the chairman of Kaizer Chiefs and everyone who has been supporting me with this move,” the Zimbabwean attacker told SABC TV after the match.
“I want to thank especially the chairman for the opportunity they have given me. This is a great club with a great history I always wanted to play for this team. After being named Man of the Match in this great club I’m now looking forward to the future.”
Billiat went on to say that coming up against his former side improves him as a player as he has to add a new dimension in his game.
“It’s tough [to play against former teammates] but it makes the player better and better. I know they know me and I know them. You have to come up with something new so your game improves all the time. My teammates [at Chiefs] gave me courage and support. They knew it was going to be tough. I’m looking forward to the great family we have I’m sure we can achieve something," he added.
