JOHANNESBURG — Khama Billiat says he is aware of Mamelodi Sundowns’ reputation as a graveyard for players deemed surplus to requirements — but insists he is ready to fight.
“When I first heard of Sundowns’ interest, I told myself that I was going to focus on helping Ajax survive relegation,” Billiat told KickOff, revealing that Sundowns had come calling before the end of the season.
“I needed this move. I know people say that Sundowns kills player careers, but I’m ready to fight . . . this motivated me to work even harder.
“I realised I was in my comfort zone for too long and my game was not going anywhere.” — KickOff
