Billiat Missing From Chiefs' Training Amid Transfer Rumours
Soccer Laduma reports that Warriors and Kaizer Chiefs talisman, Khama Billiat, has not reported for pre-season training with Soweto giants as the club anticipates a huge offer for his services.
Recent reports suggest that a Moroccan club has made Billiat its prime transfer target as it seeks the winger to replace Zakaria Hadraf, who left the club for Saudi Arabia.
However, sources from within Kaizer Chiefs said that Billiat’s absence from training is a club decision meant to give him rest following his exertions at the Africa Cup of Nations. Said the source:
Khama has been given permission by the club to enjoy a break after what has been a busy last few weeks for him. After the season ended, he went straight to the Zimbabwe national team for the COSAFA Cup, and after that, he went to the AFCON.
He is a human being also, and he needs a break at times. Khama is not the kind of a player who will go AWOL or do things like that.
If he was asked to go and train (after coming from AFCON) he was going to go without asking for a break. Fortunately, he was given permission to take a break and he will be back soon.
