Khama Billiat Kaizer Chiefs - July 2019
Many Amakhosi supporters were not happy with their head coach's last team selection and want to see changes made for the next game

Kaizer Chiefs' next match in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) is away to AmaZulu in Durban next week Tuesday.

On the weekend, Amakhosi lost 1-0 to Polokwane City and many fans were upset Khama Billiat and Itumeleng Khune didn't start.

We take a look at the big controversy regarding the treatment of Billiat, who kept Zimbabwe's Fifa World Cup qualification hopes alive last week.

When returning to his club in South Africa, coach Ernst Middendorp was not happy the Zimbabwean participated in the international fixture against Somalia.

Billiat went on to score the deciding goal for Zimbabwe in the second leg qualifier last week, but only came on in the second half for Chiefs in their losing cause against City.

We take a look at some Amakhosi fans' feelings on Billiat's treatments from social media this weekend. We also include video interviews of the supporters, recorded by Amakhosi 4 Live and posted on Twitter.

Then there are Chiefs fans who believe Khune should be starting games due to how much he influences their play with his ball distribution and inspirational qualities.

Middendorp and his technical team have taken the decision not to start both players based on their fitness, but the fans believe it is worth a risk to start them.

With a week to go to the match in Durban, there is time for both Billiat and Khune to improve their fitness and start against Usuthu.
