Former Kaizer Chiefs star and Zimbabwe captain Knowledge Musona has chipped in to give his views on the somewhat dim start that Khama Billiat has had to his Amakhosi career.
Having joined Amakhosi at the start of the season, Billiat has so far produced seven goals and nine assists in 26 appearances.
“Admittedly, Khama has not exploded the way many expected he would when he arrived at the Amakhosi seven months ago,’’ wrote The Herald’s Senior Sports Editor, Robson Sharuko.
“His touch has betrayed and deserted him, his confidence appears drained and his sparkle appears to have faded.
“But, the worst we can do is to suggest he is finished, to spread the narrative his best days are behind him, to even contemplate we are seeing the beginning of the end of Khamaldinho.
“To swallow the propaganda that his recent struggles are just the first signs of a downhill slide into oblivion, the first signs of the inevitable plunge from greatness back to the ordinary world of us mere mortals.
“I resist that flawed argument because I have heard it before, from heavyweight television and newspaper pundits, and — as it turned out — all of it was just trash talk with their attempts to write the epitaph on the tombstones of the careers of many footballers turning out to be premature.
“Yes, Khama can do better, no doubt about that, and can play far better than he is doing now.
“But I am not desperate to give up on him, to be swayed by the armchair analysts to doubt his quality because I am a firm believer that form is temporary and class is permanent," concluded Shakuro.
