Khama Billiat not concerned by lack of goals for Mamelodi Sundowns

MAMELODI Sundowns forward Khama Billiat says he is not concerned by his recent goal drought, and is happy as long as the team continues to do well.

The Zimbabwean international has battled to replicate his impressive form from last season, in which in he amassed 14 goals and 20 assists in all competitions, and has managed just one goals in his club's last nine games in all competitions.

Despite this, Billiat played a pivotal role in helping Sundowns to the MTN8 final as well as to CAF Champions League glory last month, and says his lack of personal success does not concern him at the moment.

“No, it’s not a concern [for me], because I’m trying to play my best football to help the team,” said 26-year-old star, who has attracted widespread interest from teams abroad.

“I’m not trying to think about myself, or put myself under pressure by trying to repeat what happened last season.

“I’m just trying to be strong mentally, and not put myself under more pressure. If the goals are to come then they will, like they did last season."

Billiat, meanwhile, has welcomed the return of Colombian striker Leonard Castro, who has been out with an ankle injury for almost three months.

“He’s a good player and we missed him. He’s very good in the air and we missed his height," he added.

"It’s a key addition to the team because he can score goals at any time. He helps the team and his presence is very vital.”

The Brazilians face a stern test against Kaizer Chiefs at the Loftus Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with kick-off scheduled for 15h30.
