Khama Billiat dedicated his man-of-the-match award to the Amakhosi faithful after Kaizer Chiefs’ 4-2 Nedbank Cup semi-final victory over Chippa United.
Billiat set up Bernard Parker for Chiefs’ third before putting the cherry on the top with one of the contenders for goal of the season.
“Firstly, I want to thank the coach, I want to thank God, I want to thank the chairman and Amakhosi supporters that have been patient with us,” Billiat told Supersport TV.
“It hasn’t been a great season but they deserve something.
“Hopefully we won’t just be part of the final. We want to take it home. The fans deserve better. We want to boost confidence for next season.
“This award is for our supporters. It really means a lot to us the support they give us throughout the games even if sometimes we have bad games. But they are always there for us, giving us confidence.”
When joining the club, Billiat said he wanted to join a club with a history of winning trophies and hopes to do just that come the final on May 18 against NFD outfit TS Galaxy, who beat Golden Arrows 2-1 earlier in the day.
“I always knew that this is a team to win trophies with. We don’t want to get carried away. We have to prepare, we still have games in between Hopefully when it comes to the final we are all ready to give the fans a smile at the end of the final.”
