Former Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane has expressed that he wished he could've kept Khama Billiat after he signed for Kaizer Chiefs in 2018. Mosimane says that he even wanted to re-sign the player but couldn't do so because of his contractual obligations.

"When I was still at Sundowns, yes I wanted Khama, but you can’t have a player who belongs to another team and is contracted to another team," said Mosimane, according to iDiskiTimes.
