Khama Billiat Accused Of Lying About His Age
Outspoken South African coach Mlungisi ‘Professor’ Ngubane has suggested that Kaizer Chiefs forward Khama Billiat lied about his age.
In his argument, Ngubane said if Khama Billiat who turned 30 on August 19 is really 29 he would not be playing the way he is currently doing.
“Billiat is playing like a player who came here having reduced his age,” Mlungisi said.
“Now he’s trying but it’s no longer happening. Maybe he is not even 29. He can’t play like this. Earning so much money and you play like that? The heart and the mind wants to do it but the body refuses.”
The comments come after Kaizer Chiefs lost their clear advantage in the title race after losing 1-0 to Bidvest Wits on Sunday afternoon and have now failed to win their last four Absa Premiership games.
Chiefs have thrown away a lead that once stood at 10 points at the top of the table but have been helped by the fact that Mamelodi Sundowns have been unable to capitalise, also losing 1-0 to Baroka FC on Sunday evening.
In an interview with Kickoff.com, Ngubane said something went wrong at Kaizer Chiefs ever since Shaun Bartlett stopped standing up during matches.
“There’s something wrong at Chiefs, I don’t know. There’s a change at Chiefs,” Mlungisi tells KickOff.com.
“Bartlett is no more standing up like he used to. Now he sits until the game is over. Somebody said something to him, that, ‘I’m the coach, you can’t just go and stand.’
“When Chiefs were shining, scoring, performing, Bartlett was always on his feet. Now Bartlett is sitting down, no more performance. That’s my opinion.”
