Junior Khanye believes Kaizer Chiefs and Khama Billiat should both swallow their pride as they still need each other.
Billiat has been a free agent since leaving Kaizer Chiefs at the end of the 2022/23 season and there has been speculation about his future.
The forward was linked with Cape Town City in November 2022, however the club said they were waiting on the player at the time.
Chiefs care-taker coach Cavin Johnson has spoken that he will not be making any signings in the January transfer window, but Khanye believes he should change his mind, as he could get the best out of the former Zimbabwe international.
“Both parties need to come together. I’m talking about Kaizer Chiefs, Khama Billiat and his agent,” Khanye said on iDiski TV.
“One, I don’t think he [Billiat] was coached by the right coaches, even the environment at Kaizer Chiefs at the time wasn’t good.
“At Sundowns he was surrounded by the likes of Percy [Tau], Keagan Dolly, Bongani Zungu at their best, well many players even Katlego Mphela.
“He arrived to a different environment at Chiefs and they were already playing ‘helicopter football’. He was always injured and by right you couldn’t rely on him because they played him off position at times as a striker.
“So bring him in, Cavin will bring out the best in him because he [Cavin] needs someone who can cut in and players like Mdu [Shabalala] and [Pule] Mmodi can’t do that. Their footwork needs work; they are not even arrogant on the ball, no individual brilliance and no consistency. So bring Khama to Cavin Johnson.”
