Khama Billiat trains with SuperSport United, contract prospects remain uncertain
Zimbabwean football star, Khama Billiat, has started training with South African club SuperSport United, aiming to secure a contract under the guidance of coach Gavin Hunt. Billiat has been without a club since his departure from Kaizer Chiefs at the end of last season. While Hunt is keen on offering him another opportunity in the Premier Soccer League, concerns about the player’s injury history have left the club hesitant.
An inside source at SuperSport revealed that although Hunt has shown interest in Billiat, it is still too early to determine the outcome. The club remains cautious due to the player’s previous injuries, which have raised doubts about his current condition. The source stated, “The boy has too many wounds, he is no longer the same Khama Billiat. That’s the only doubt the club has with him, otherwise there is no other reason to make a player like Billiat trial.”
Negotiations and discussions about the contract terms have not yet commenced, with the club emphasizing that Billiat must be fully healed before any potential signing. SuperSport United defender Onismor Bhasera expressed his support for Billiat, suggesting that the club should sign him. Bhasera acknowledged that Billiat may need time to regain his form after a period of inactivity but emphasized the quality and experience he could bring to the team.
While the outcome of Khama Billiat’s trial with SuperSport United remains uncertain, both the players and the club are cautiously exploring the possibility of a future collaboration. The decision will ultimately depend on Billiat’s fitness and ability to overcome his injury concerns, as SuperSport United weighs the potential benefits of adding his quality and experience to their squad.
