Player Agent: Khama Consulted Katsande, Castro and Family to Join Amakhosi

Johannesburg  – Fellow Zimbabwean international and Kaizer Chiefs midfield kingpin Willard Katsande and his family were influential in Khama Billiat's move to Naturena from Sundowns, snubbing lucrative offers from European clubs. 

According to Mike Ngobeni, Billiat's agent the player is very excited to join his boyhood club Kaizer Chiefs.

“Another thing he said to me was that he made consultation with (Willard) Katsande and (Leonardo) Castro, so they’ve been talking also and he ended up deciding.

“I went to Zim, spoke to his mother and father. And they were certain that he wants to go to Kaizer Chiefs. So Chiefs won, I had a good one in Turkey from a team from League Two.

“What I’ve done was to explain to him the countries and their leagues. Players are different; some players are interested in zeros, but with Khama if you do that you will have a problem," Ngobeni revealed. 

Billiat reportedly turned down offers from teams in Turkey, as well as one from Egyptian giants Zamalek.

“I can tell you the boy is excited, so excited. He decided that no, he was certain with Kaizer Chiefs. I had to give him another two more days. I told him ‘think about it (and) I will come see you in Zim’.’’

“Look, I’m a servant of players. I work for players, okay? So when you work for a player, the player at the end of the day needs to decide. I have done my homework, I brought (to him) not one contract, not even one offer, I brought contracts and offers.

Despite Mamelodi Sundowns’ best efforts to hold onto Billiat, the Zimbabwean international decided to join his boyhood club Kaizer Chiefs on a three-year deal.

Motaung did not only engage with the player, but with his family as well in an effort to capture what will arguably be the biggest transfer during the window.

“It was not difficult. As you know he is a big player and we all know that it was understood that he is going overseas and all the big clubs were interested in him,’’ Motaung said.

Amakhosi will need him to be at his best if they are to rediscover their glory days. - KickOff
