Khama Billiat’s impressive performances in September earned him the Absa Premiership Player-of-the- Month award, but the Kaizer Chiefs striker says it was all about the whole team, and says there is room for improvement.
The former Mamelodi Sundowns star spearheaded the Chiefs attack in September, scoring two goals and grabbing two assists. The Glamour Boys went on to record three straight wins, beating Cape Town City 4-1, Free State Stars 2-0 and AmaZulu FC by the same scoreline.
“I would like to thank all the players and the technical team. It is not about me, I think we all had a great run as a team up until now. We are looking at improving and we have a goal we want to achieve,” said the Chiefs star, while sitting alongside his coach Giovanni Solinas, who bagged the Coach-of-the-Month accolade at the PSL headquarters in Parktown yesterday.
The Zimbabwean said it was every player’s wish to win awards, particularly the end-of-season awards, but says that can only be done if the club is doing well and Chiefs are still in a process, taking it one game at a time.
“Every player always wants to do better and receive awards, but most importantly, you can win awards only if the club is doing well. So we have to go back to the drawing board and make sure we all work together towards achieving our goals. And as long as the team does well, we will get to see individual players playing at their best,” he continued.
“It’s a process, it’s not a nice one but we have to go through it and right now we are just putting our focus on one game at a time. It would be nice if a Kaizer Chiefs player gets an award at the end of the season.”
