Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs has confirmed that they could miss the services of Zimbabwean star player Khama Billiat when they return to action after the player suffered another knock.

"Billiat got a knock to his right pelvic bone during The Amakhosi's 2-1 win in their away Absa Premiership encounter that took place last Tuesday against Cape Town City, he has had a scan done, and it is unclear how long he needs to recover at this stage," said Chiefs said in a statement.

Billiat has featured sparingly for the club since returning from national duty in July.

He has also been the subject of a long winded transfer saga with strong links to his former club Mamelodi Sundowns although Chiefs stated that he was not leaving the club.

The match against City was Billiat’s second start of the season, and the only one where he lasted the full 90 minutes.

The 29-year-old missed Chiefs’ first two league matches after returning from the Afcon 2019 tournament with a niggle.

He joined Chiefs on a free transfer from Sundowns at the beginning of the 2018/19 campaign.

In his first season, he finished with five league goals, making an appearance in all but four matches.

Billiat’s injury also likely means that the attacker will be withdrawn from the Zimbabwe squad for their World Cup qualifier with Somalia. 

Chiefs also issued out an update on defender Ramahlwe Mphahlele, who has been out with a groin injury.

The Bafana fullback is on the mend, along with starlet Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, who has been out of action since March.

“Ngcobo is another ray of hope coming through with the news that the youngster has started training with the team, albeit making no contact yet. The young midfield dynamo is recovering from an Achilles injury picked up last season.”

Kaizer Chiefs currently top the league standings and have a two-week break before returning to league action with a home game against Polokwane City.
