Mosimane signed Billiat as a 22-year-old from a struggling Ajax Cape Town side and turned him into a world-beater.

Mosimane said, "Khama played different football [at Sundowns back then]. Khama is totally different. It's unbelievable - every week I am watching."

Daily Sun reported that Mosimane told Billiat that he's the best footballer that Zimbabwe has ever produced and that he could go onto great things at Sundowns.
