Billiat Hailed As One Of The Best
KHAMA BILLIAT has been hailed as one of the best players in the ABSA Premiership despite featuring less prominently for Mamelodi Sundowns this term.
Sundowns’ new striker Jeremy Brockie described Percy Tau and Billiat as two of the best players in the league.
Brockie had an opportunity to play upfront with Tau and Billiat in the Absa Premiership match against Cape Town City recently.
He watched in awe as Tau’s brilliantly looped pass was volleyed home by Billiat, as Sundowns registered their first victory over the Citizens.
“I think you are talking about the best players in the league, then you’ve just named the two of them. The ability that they have in a one-on-one situation, to glide past players. You can see the influence they have on the team in the goal we scored [against City].
“To be able to share the pitch with those two is welcoming and I am really looking forward to those relationships building over time.”
Brockie is still waiting for his first goal for the Brazilians and will be hoping it comes when they take on Free State Stars at home next
