Why did Khama Billiat miss the last game? Kaizer Chiefs officially broke their winning strike yesterday in a match against Maritzburg United during Telkom Knockout challenge. However, one thing surprised the fans. Their star player, Khama Billiat was left out of the matchday squad. Will this last match have devastating effects on Kaizer Chiefs?
At this time Chiefs are still leading the PSL results log. But let’s get back to the main subject, which is Khama Billiat who entirely missed the game. It was expected that Zimbabwean will take a starring role for Kaizer Chiefs game.
With comments earlier in the week, nobody could even suspect that Khama won’t show up for the Telkom Knockout. The Glamour Boys were aiming to take the place in TKO final but now their skills are once again, brought into question. Their star player’s absence from the squad as well as starting IX might have had some impact on their overall game.
Khama Billiat still struggling with a hamstring injury
It turns out that the coach Ernst Middendorp made this decision shortly before the match. He decided to leave the attacker out of his side because of fitness issue Khama was dealing with. The coach rather took a 2-1 hit to their shining record than risking his wellbeing.
Kaizer Chiefs confirmed on social media before the kick-off at Mbombela Stadium, “Khama Billiat reported to the national team duty with a high hamstring. After two matches played with it, it’s still niggling. He was treated but didn’t manage to recover enough to participate in the Telkom Knockout. Khama is still not fit for the game.”
It still cannot be confirmed will Khama be in shape for a next week’s game against Stellenbosch FC on Wednesday night. The 29-year-old doesn’t have much for recovery. Middendorp will certainly be focused on getting back on track because of the disappointing loss. There are good news for all punters as now you can prepare for the next fixture with Betway mobile!
