Coming up for Amakhosi is the Motsepe Championship (MFC) side Milford FC in the Nedbank Cup last 32.

The game is set for this afternoon at the FNB Stadium from 18:00.

Milford are currently in 12th place on the MFC log with five wins, five draws and nine defeats in 19 games.

Speaking to the media before the game, Johnson said a lack of goals affects his team.

“Personally, it would mean the world to end the club’s trophy drought. I think it would also be huge for the club and its massive following,” the Chiefs tactician said via The Sowetan.

“Hopefully, the gods of football are on my side or not on my side but on the club’s side so that we are able to display a lot of what we’ve been working on and score as many goals as we can because we are also struggling in that department,” Johnson added.


In other news, Chiefs’ ex-attacking midfielder Khama Billiat has moved on with his career.

The former Cape Town Spurs star left Chiefs in July 2023. He was seemingly set to join Cape Town City, but no offer was made.

Billiat later emerged in Tshwane last month. The 33-year-old started to train with SuperSport United, as reported by @SAFootClassics via X.

Sadly for Billiat, the plan was not a success as he stopped training with Matsatsanta a Pitori.

“Former Kaizer Chiefs forward Khama Billiat has stopped training with SuperSport United,” iDiski Times reported.

According to his former national team and Chiefs teammate, Katsande, Billiat’s latest move is positive for his career and the Zimbabwean Premier League.

“He is like Ronaldo moving from Europe to Asia. So he is going to boost every team in the League,” Katsande told FARPost‘s Ofhani Munyai.

“I am sure every player in the PSL [in Zimbabwe] can’t wait to start the season and there is a reason why they need to play well. There is a reason why they have to play against Yadah.

“The team he is going to, I know the owner is a very good friend of mine and I know him personally. So in terms of professionalism, he is in a good space where he just needs to focus on football,” the former Chiefs skipper added.

“It is a good decision for him to go there to revive his career, especially in this difficult moment.

“We know that he didn’t play for close to a year,” concluded Katsande.

“So he needs space where he is going to be comfortable to try to come up again. He just needs a different environment whereby he kicks start again. He is a fragile boy, I know him very well so I think it was a good move for him.

“There is nothing wrong [with his move], look at Ronaldo. He went to Saudi Arabia and he is still scoring goals. We also need him to get out of retirement and help us qualify for the World Cup.”
