Billiat likely favorite to win Award

ZIMBABWE international forward Khama Billiat could pocket a cool R450 000 on Monday night when the South African Premiership honours its outstanding footballers for the 2015/ 2016 season with the Warriors’ star expected to win all the major awards.

The Super Diski annual awards are set for Johannesburg’s Emperors Palace on Monday night and Billiat is the odds-on favourite to scoop the top awards.

It was also revealed yesterday that Billiat could move to Europe this year.

Billiat has been nominated for the big award, the South African Footballer of the Season, the ABSA Premiership Players’ Player of the Season as well as the ABSA Premiership Midfielder of the Season awards.

Everything right now points to a clean sweep by the Zimbabwean who took his football to a new level as he guided Mamelodi Sundowns to their second league title in three years with a record points tally.

Billiat, fittingly, scored his club’s final goal of the season on Saturday, running to a pass from teammate Keagan Dolly, fooling his marker as he cut inside at pace and then lifting the ball over the Platinum Stars ‘keeper.

Only last Friday, he won the Kick-Off Footballer of the Season Award in an online poll which was conducted by the soccer magazine.

The Footballer of the Season Award is voted for by the Premiership coaches and his Sundowns’ gaffer Pitso Mosimane has already said Billiat should win the award while Jomo Sono also revealed that he will vote for the Zimbabwean.

Billiat will battle for the top award with his teammates Dolly and Homplo Kekana.

He will also fight the duo for the Players’ Player of the Season Award.

The Zimbabwean ace became the first player in the South African Premiership to provide 20 assists in one season while he also scored 13 league goals for the Brazilians.

“I told Khama when you come to Sundowns, I am bringing you to win the Footballer of the Year. I told him, I said to him, ‘You will win the Footballer of the Season’. It was like a talk, it took time. It took us three years.

The nominees, which were unveiled by the PSL also feature another Zimbabwean after Orlando Pirates forward Tendai Ndoro was nominated for the Nedbank Cup Player of the Tournament.

Ndoro, who endured a frustrating start at his new club before bouncing back strongly when he started to get game time, has been a revelation at Pirates.

He is the leading goal-scorer in the Nedbank Cup, where he has so far grabbed five goals.

However, all eyes will be on the former Ajax Cape Town and CAPS United midfielder, Billiat, who lit the Premiership this season with his wizardry and took his game to a new level of excellence.

The Mufakose-born player also finished as the fourth best scorer in the league with 13 goals, two goals shy of Golden Boot Award winner Collins Mbesuma.
