Mamelodi Sundowns have been struggling of late as they are winless in their last six league encounters.

A contributing factor to their slump is down to the fact that a few of their key players, including Khama Billiat, have not been at their usual best.

The Zimbabwean has failed to relive the form which set the African continent alight in 2016. 

Billiat has been on the receiving end of interest from abroad and while a move away from Chloorkop could be on the cards in the near future, the 26-year-old maintains it has not been a distraction.

"I don't believe it has to do with my performance,” Billiat told the media.

“Even last season, there were moments when it looked like I was going to leave the team. I didn't and I still kept on going," said Billiat

"I also want to see him (the Billiat of last season). I just need to work a little bit harder like my coach (Pitso Mosimane) has been saying," he said.

The Brazilians have had to deal with a congested schedule which has claimed several casualties along the way, but Billiat maintains that fatigue has not been responsible for their recent string of disappointing results.

"Fatigue is always going to be there, but you can always win games if your mind is right,” Billiat continued.

"We've been looking for a turnaround; to bring back the Sundowns that everyone knows," Billliat concluded.
