Although Chiefs have failed to win any silverware during his time at the club, this is likely a reflection of the team’s struggles, rather than Billiat’s individual output. Additionally, Billiat has played under multiple coaches, each with different tactics and formations.
As his contract winds down, the Chiefs’ management will have to decide whether to offer Billiat an extension. Despite a slump a few seasons ago, signs of his return to form were visible last season, potentially aided by the arrival of former Sundowns teammate Keagan Dolly.
However, Chiefs have suffered from several injuries this season, and Billiat’s hopes of a return to fitness were dashed by the need for surgery to repair a torn groin muscle. Head coach Arthur Zwane confirmed that Billiat, along with two other players, underwent surgery, leaving the team with several players on the treatment table.
Despite the challenges, Chiefs played a 1-0 to a 10-man Richards Bay in the DStv Premiership on March 4 leaving them in fourth place on the league standings with 34 points from 22 games. Richards Bay is currently in 6th place with 31 points from 22 games.
As Billiat is currently on injury his future at Chiefs remains uncertain. It remains to be seen if he will be offered a contract extension or if Chiefs will opt for a new direction in their attack.
