ZIMBABWE international and Mamelodi Sundowns star Khama Billiat was involved in a car accident on Saturday but club officials confirmed the midfielder was not seriously injured.

Sundowns confirmed the news via their official website, saying that the player's car veered off the road and hit a tree.

Club medic Carl Tabane revealed that Billiat suffered minor bruises to his neck and chest, but should be back in action in no time.

It is likely that the midfielder will miss the next league match against Free State Stars on Wednesday as he was given time off until Tuesday.

“We are glad to announce that Khama escaped the accident, which could have been worse considering that he avoided an oncoming car,” said Tabane, in the statement.

“Just as a precautionary measure the player has been given a few days off and will be further assessed when he returns to training on Tuesday.”

Mamelodi Sundowns communication co-ordinator Thulani Thuswa added: “Mamelodi Sundowns can confirm that Khama Billiat has been involved in a car accident and the car is written off.

"He avoided a head on collision and swerved off the road. He escaped with minor bruises on his shoulder and on his chest, so he wasn’t badly injured.

"As a precaution, he will be given a few days off to recover fully. He should be back in training on Tuesday.” 

The former Caps midfielder has been a revelation at Mamelodi Sundowns since joining from Cape Town Ajax at the start of the season.

He has won rave reviews in South Africa with some brilliant displays which have put Sundowns in a very strong position to challenge for honours this season.
