Billiat: This One Is For The Supporters
Mamelodi Sundowns forward Khama Billiat dedicated his side's emphatic 5-0 victory against SuperSport United to the Masandawana faithful.
Billiat single-handedly unlocked the SuperSport defence as he was involved in the contribution of the first three goals, before getting his name on the scoresheet with two well-taken goals.
The former Ajax Cape Town man said that he hopes that the resounding victory will be the start of good things to come for Masandawna, who ended their five-game winless streak with the win.
"Firstly, I just want to thank God. I'm back, I feel strong," Billiat said after the game.
"And thanks to the medical team and the technical team, everyone has been there for me. The players, the captain - they have been truly supporting - and my family as well. This I just want to dedicate it to the supporters, we haven't been getting points as much as we have wanted.
"Ya, I hope this is the beginning of the victories and the way we want to play and ya, my team mates have been working very hard but not getting results so I hope this is the beginning," he added.
When quizzed about Hlompho Kekana's pre-match directive to him on scoring a brace - the Zimbabwe international revealed that the captain's faith in him paid off.
"Ya, we believe in each other, we know each others strengths and I haven't been scoring goals since I cam back and I always want to score goals to help the team.
"We haven't been scoring goals as a team. So we have been working very hard with the coach, extra training with the strikers and ya we getting goals. I am happy I scored as it was predicted by the skipper," he concluded.
