New Kaizer Chiefs forward Khama Billiat is pleased to have reunited with Colombian marksman Leonardo Castro at the Soweto giants.
The two attackers were part of the famous CBD (Castro, Khama Billiat and Keagan Dolly) attack which helped Mamelodi Sundowns clinch the 2016 Caf Champions League title in 2016.
Dolly is now on the books of French Ligue 1 outfit Montpelier HSC, while Billiat recently reunited with Castro at Chiefs ahead of the new 2018/19 Premier Soccer League (PSL) campaign.
“He’s a great player to play around with. I’ve missed him, I must say. Hopefully, we will continue from where we left off working together,” Billiat told the media.
“I know it’s a different team. We’ve got different tactics and we work differently, but I’m sure something can be worked out," he continued.
Billiat will face Sundowns for the first time on Saturday in the 2018 Shell Helix Cup match which is scheduled to take place at the iconic FNB Saturday.
“It’s a big game, and it’s not about me but about the club, supporters, the chairman and everyone behind the team,” he said.
“We want to do our best. We want to see how far we can go in preparing for the league, and yeah it’s a big test for us but we’re looking forward to it. The team is looking sharp, and everyone is just one happy family," he added.
The 27-year-old attacker, who was one of Sundowns' key players, is relishing facing his former team-mates at the Tshwane giants.
“Everyone in the league knows everyone - we watch our videos and I’ve been playing there [at Sundowns] for quite a long time. So, I know them; we know each other; we’re friends,” Billiat explained.
“So, that’s what makes football interesting. You have to come up with something [different] every time you play," he concluded.
