KAIZER CHIEFS AND KHAMA BILLIAT STILL TALKING

Following the 33-year-old forward’s contract expiry on 30 June and rumours of turning down a reduced salary, the Zimbabwean superstar and Amakhosi are still in the process of negotiations over a new deal.

“I don’t know that [Billiat is refusing to accept a reduced package],” the club’s Football Manager Bobby Motaung said via Sowetan.

“Khama is negotiating a new contract with the club [since] his contract has expired. It’s not a salary cut [that’s being negotiated]. A salary cut happens when somebody is earning so much and the employer cuts his salary,

“”With Khama, there’s no salary cut because the negotiations are still about the new contract. How can you cut the salary of a person who doesn’t have a contract? The negotiations are ongoing and we hope he stays but we don’t know what will come out of the negotiations at the end of the day,” Motaung concluded.
