Solinas Likens Billiat To Messi: ‘Khama Is The Best’
Khama Billiat is Kaizer Chiefs’ Lionel Messi according to Giovanni Solinas, with the club’s head coach lavishing praise on his Zimbabwean attacker.
Billiat has scored or assisted 50% of the Amakhosi’s goals so far this season in all competitions, including an assist for Siyabonga Ngezana in the 2-0 victory over AmaZulu at the weekend.
Solinas reserved special praise for the Glamour Boys’ talisman, believing that he is as important to his side as Messi is to Barcelona in Spain.
He told the club’s official website, “Barcelona have ten players and Messi. Kaizer Chiefs have ten players and Billiat. Khama is the best player in the PSL and he’s one of those rare players who makes the difference.”
Meanwhile, with Chiefs now having around a week until their next game, the Italian coach says that he’s happy to get more time to work with his players.
He added, “I am happy about the break,” Solinas confessed, “because that means that we can work hard to become even better.
“I am happy defensively, we defend as a team… The players show commitment in training and are eager to learn and improve. We just have to continue doing this. I am an optimist – our spectators haven’t seen the best of Kaizer Chiefs as yet.”
Chiefs now prepare to face Highlands Park on October 2nd.
