Khama Billiat: Most Valuable Player in the PSL

Johannesburg - The Citizen sports editor has described the Zimbabwean soccer export - Khama Billiat as a genius - while his Amakhosi coach Giovanni Solinas saluted him in a match recently. 

“Khama Billiat showed again this weekend why he is probably the most valuable player in the whole of the Premier Soccer League,” the The Citizen sports editor opined, recently.

“Just when Kaizer Chiefs needed a lift, needed someone to raise their spirits after a glum start to the season, the Zimbabwean was there to show his class and help Amakhosi pick up a first league victory of the season.

“I have criticised Billiat before for not taking an overseas move when he left Sundowns at the end of last season, after his contract ran out. Up until Saturday, of course, the results had not provided much joy, bar one MTN8 quarter-final victory over Free State Stars.

“There were a whole bunch of draws, with Giovanni Solinas’ commitment to attack badly shown up in a 2-2 stalemate with Bloemfontein Celtic.

The Zimbabwean is being hailed for his seemingly perfect timing.

“Billiat just has that knack of getting into the right place inside the box, as he proved with Chiefs’ third goal, a real poacher’s effort. If Chiefs can go on a run, however, and part of that will be sorting out their leaky defence, as well as keeping the attacking momentum going, it will be good for the league.”

Solinas has already hailed Billiat as the best player in the South African Premiership and believes he should be playing in a European league.

“For me, he is an amazing player. A top player. In my opinion, and I don’t want this to be misunderstood as disrespect for other players, he is the best player in the league, the best striker.

“Billiat, in my opinion, can play in Europe without a problem. This guy is not for this league. He can perform very well in Europe and comfortably.”

Solinas considers it a privilege that he has been given the chance to manage such a precocious talent like the Zimbabwean forward.

“It’s an honour. This player makes the difference. I am very happy that I have this player in my squad and I am glad I was asked the question so that I can talk about him.”
