Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt rallies Billiat. The new Amakhosi gaffer Gavin Hunt said he understands Billiat’s frustrations due to goal drought but believes the Zimbabwean will rediscover his fine form. Kaizer Chiefs coach Hunt has urged star player Khama Billiat to keep it simple and continue working hard.
Speaking after their 1-0 win over Chippa United on Tuesday, the former Bidvest Wits coach said Billiat has to simplify his game.
“Billiat is a little bit frustrated, and any striker would be like that. He hasn’t scored much in the last couple of games, but he has got to do simpler things, simplify his game a little bit,” said Hunt as quoted by Daily Sun.
The Warriors star is yet to score in Chiefs’ three opening matches, including a cup game.
“He tries to be (overly) clever, even in the second half he tries to be clever. In three games now he has had a couple of good chances, (and) as long as he keeps working hard there is another one coming. “If he keeps running off the ball, keeps defending, keeps doing the right things, he will keep playing,”
Hunt believes time will come for his star player to break the deadlock and went on to admit that he is doing well for the team.
“I think it is about breaking the ice with him, then he will get a couple (of goals). I thought tonight was his chance, he hit the post once or twice, the second half one was the one he should have scored. He came across the box and opened up the whole goal, he had to hit the target there.
“But he is doing well, and yeah… team first, him second and that’s the most important thing, then we are okay. He can’t think of himself first.
“On Saturday he tried to shoot from corner flags and things like that, which we can’t accept and I told him. He will get better, as long as he buys in (to my ways) he will get better,” said Hunt.
