The Kaizer Chiefs rebuild is on.

Amakhosi management will need to wheel and deal this January in order to bring in new targets, but also to keep key stars at Naturena. Here’s what’s being proposed.

Amakhosi management is currently considering drastic measures to clean up their wage bill and freshen up the playing personnel. That includes dropping the average age of the side where possible. That starts with an underperforming attacker.


It’s safe to say that Khama Billiat has not enjoyed the best form of his career with Chiefs. 47 goals in 140 appearances for Sundowns was by far Billiat’s best strike ratio throughout his club career. 0.34 goals per game is a respectable goal-scoring rate for a man who operated mainly in wide areas or behind a conventional striker.

Now, he’s scoring at a rate of 0.20 goals per game, the worst ratio of his club career. If Billiat moves on, the club’s accountants will be relieved to get his massive wages off the balance sheet.

Frosler’s is on Rhulani Mokwena’s radar at Sundowns, and the 24-year-old would fetch a decent price. Dillan Solomons is first-choice at right-back, and perhaps Chiefs could invest the money in bolstering their forward options.
