Legend on why Chiefs must just forget about outcast Billiat
Following his sudden exit from Kaizer Chiefs, legend Derrick Spencer says the Soweto giants must just forget about Khama Billiat.
Kaizer Chiefs legend Derrick Spencer has tipped the Soweto giants to forget about outcast Khama Billiat as they have found a gem in Edson Castillo.
Spencer, who also played for Mamelodi Sundowns argues that Billiat didn’t offer anything to Chiefs during his stay since 2018, reports Goal.
This comes as Billiat’s future remains a subject of speculation since he is said to have joined Egyptian giants, Zamalek.
LEGEND: CHIEFS FANS MUST JUST FORGET ABOUT BILLIAT
Billiat joined Chiefs after his sensational departure from Sundowns and failed to lead Amakhosi to cup glory despite his arrival as a key player.
While he has also suffered a number of injuries, many fans were shocked to see him leave since he failed to agree on a new deal at Naturena.

“Castillo is a very good player. He looks relaxed on the ball and brings the team together. He is a quality player and this is what the team needed,” Spencer told Soccer Laduma.
“You cannot compare him to Khama. He did nothing for Chiefs. We are actually better without him.
“Tell me what did he [Billiat] do since he joined the team? Nothing. He has been the best signing not only for this season but in the past few years.
“The club did a good job in bringing him in and looking at the way he is playing, he will help the team a lot. His quality will rub off on the other players which is what we needed in the team.”
CHIEFS OUTCAST BILLIAT SIGNS FOR ZAMALEK
As also published by The South African, Billiat has found a new football home in North Africa where he will play for Zamalek.
A local football publication, Phakaaathi reported that the former Chiefs star striker signs a contract with the White Knights as the speculation surrounding his future has come to an end.
This comes as The South African also published that the former Sundowns hitman was on his way to North Africa to join the White Knights.
According to the report, Billiat has signed on the dotted line with the North African giants, Zamalek and could be officially unveiled by the Egyptian Premier League outfit.
