Still No Khama Billiat In Sundowns Squad
Mamelodi Sundowns have confirmed that Denis Onyango will not be in action on Saturday and a source has since revealed that the Brazilians will also be without the services of Khama Billiat.
Sundowns arrived in Uganda yesterday, March 15, as they gear up for the second leg of their CAF Champions League match with Kampala Capital City FC on Saturday, March 18.
Talking to media in Uganda, Sundowns confirmed on their official website, “Pitso Mosimane had bad news for Ugandan fans who were hoping to see their goalkeeper hero Denis Onyango in action for his club: the African a Player of the Year based on the continent will not be playing on Saturday.”
However, with no official confirmation from the club about whether or not Billiat has recovered from the injury he sustained last month, a source has revealed that the 26-year-old did not travel with the Masandawana squad to Uganda.
Another player added to the injury list is attacker Sibusiso Vilakazi, with Mosimane confirming that the player will be out for a very long time.
"I think Vila is going to be out for very long, hopefully Khama (Billiat) comes back,” Mosimane said after the team’s clash against Polokwane City on Tuesday.
However, a Siya source has indicated that Billiat is still not match fit and he has remained behind in Mzansi to focus on his recovery.
