The first team squad has been back at training after having had a break for about two weeks. The Zimbabwean admits time that pre-season is not his “favourite pastime”, as it includes loads of running. However, it needs to be done to be “ready for the new season”
He’s excited about Hunt’s approach. “We have seen with him, while coaching other clubs, that no player is ever guaranteed to play. He’s a coach who brings the best out of you.
“I’ve always wanted to work with him,” says Khama Billiat about Kaizer Chiefs’ pre-season with new coach Gavin Hunt. “He’s a great coach who knows how to win.”
“He makes players feel happy and that’s what we needed. You can feel it at training, there is a different energy.”
Billiat feels confident that Hunt will help him get back “to my best”.
The Zimbabwean has already been taken aside by the coach at training. “He made clear what he expected from me,” Billiat reflects.
Billiat is ready for the 2020/2021 season. “A new coach will bring in different things, which is good. Challenges always bring the best out of us, players. We all want to do better than last season.”
