Khama Billiat Races Against Time
Zimbabwe international striker Khama Billiat is racing against time to be fit for Saturday night’s clash against Egyptian giants Al Ahly in the CAF Champions League final.
Billiat is said to be back at training jogging, but not yet involved in full-contact sessions, leaving his chances of playing in the final in the balance.
If Billiat regains fitness in time for the Al Ahly showdown and takes to the pitch, he will become the only South African Premier Soccer League player to feature in two CAF Champions League finals.
Billiat is the only member of the Chiefs squad who has played in a CAF Champions League final before.
The Zimbabwean was at Mamelodi Sundowns books when the Brazilians won the continental crown in 2016 against another Egyptian side Zamalek.
Though he didn’t score, Billiat started both games, lasting just over an hour at home before he was substituted out with five minutes left in the return leg.
Billiat, now 30, has managed five starts in this Champions League campaign, largely due to his injury struggles.
In his last appearance away at Horoya of Guinea on 10 April, he scored the equaliser that secured Chiefs’ passage into the quarter-finals for the first time in the club’s history.
