Recent reports from Zimbabwe have indicated that Ndlovu, who is a legend of Zimbabwe football, allegedly tried to block Billiat from joining camp with the Warriors.

Angered by the reports, the Downs’ official travelled with Billiat to Zimbabwe to clear the air about his alleged refusal to release the reigning PSL Footballer of the Season to the national team.

“The first thing is, I would like to tell you that Khama is here. People were saying he is not coming. As you know, Khama is injured. I have his medical history with me. I have everything with me. Just to give you a background of the old Zimbabwe setup with Sundowns, it’s a norm, when a player is called up, we request for travel arrangements so that we know where our player is and how we can arrange and facilitate so that he comes back as quickly as he can. So Zifa did not send the travel arrangements to us, they sent the information to the player. That is the reality and true story. We acknowledged the call-up and said we need the itinerary to go with it. At the same time, we sent them the medical history. Khama has not been training for five weeks at Sundowns,” Ndlovu told Zimbabwe media.

“As a Zimbabwean, why would I not want Khama to come and perform for the country? I want to win things. I want him to win things. Why would I shut him? Why would I shut Zimbabwe? For me, I am Zimbabwean, Khama is Zimbabwean and we must represent Zimbabwe and honour that. I personally spoke to the team manager. There was another omission on the ticket sent to Khama. It had no date of return and he had to correct that,” concluded the former Zimbabwe captain as quoted on NewsDay.
