Khama Billiat
MAMELODI Sundowns kingpin Khama Billiat is in camp with the Zimbabwe national team as The Warriors get ready for the AFCON finals in Gabon.

There has been a glut of negative reports around Billiat during the festive season emanating from the fact that Sundowns had requested that he be allowed to rest first before linking up with the rest of the squad that has been in camp in Harare since last week.

Sundowns’ special arrangement was based on the amount of football that Billiat has already played in the last 18 months.

What then created concerns was what Billiat was apparently doing during his rest time away from the demands of professional football back home in Harare.

However, KickOff.com has been informed that despite not being in camp for the first week as he rested the 26 year-old came in for the mandatory CAF medicals last week and has been passed fit for the tournament in Gabon running from January 14 to February 5.

He is expected to play a key role in Gabon and will also feature in the last friendly match that The Warriors will play against Cameroon next Tuesday.

Former Kaizer Chiefs forward Knowledge Musona – who now plays in Belgium – is the other late arrival in camp having been held up by commitments at his club KV Oostende where he is the club’s leading scorer.

Meanwhile, Billiat is favoured to win the African Player of the Year based on the continent on Thursday in Lagos, Nigeria at the CAF awards ceremony.

Billiat has been shortlisted along with his Ugandan teammate at Sundowns Denis Onyango and Zambian midfielder Rainford Kalaba of TP Mazembe – the CAF Confederations Cup winners.
