Kaizer Chiefs forward Khama Billiat was seemingly ruled out with an injury earlier in the week, but he has worked his way back to fitness and looks ready to play against Congo.
He has not only disappointed Amakhosi fans who were hoping Billiat would take a rest and get sharp in the PSL, but he has now gone on and filmed a taxi that boasts his image in a Mamelodi Sundowns kit.
Honestly, Billiat may not bother what kit he is wearing as he is just enjoying the limelight and love he is receiving in Southern Africa. However, he needs to remember there is a strong rivalry between Downs and Chiefs, particularly due to his very own transfer across these two clubs. So, it is a sensitive matter and fans read in many subconscious intentions.
Nonetheless, if any top player in Europe did this, let's say the Brazilian Ronaldo filmed himself in a Barcelona kit after his controversial move to Real Madrid, we can assure you that won't be seen as a simple gesture.
If you have any doubts about the ill feeling of Billiat wearing a Sundowns top, then read the responses on Twitter below.
We'd like to think that Billiat is just happy with the admiration he's receiving by taxi drivers. You can watch the video here.
