For a year many Amakhosi fans have been proud despite their lack of trophies, because the Zimbabwean chose to leave Masandawana for their famous club
Many Chiefs fans are pointing out, if Billiat is sold, then it would underline the false direction the club is taking. Then there are Sundowns fans complaining at the reported prices the Zimbabwean star would be available for, a year after leaving the Brazilians for free.
Have Sundowns fans forgiven Billiat for moving to Chiefs under such circumstances? These are some of the questions Twitter followers are posting.
We take a look at media reports believing Chiefs and Sundowns are in serious negotiation over the transfer.
However, Goal has already reported why Chiefs wouldn’t sanction such a deal, quoting their coach Ernst Middendorp.

Nevertheless, other reports are scaring fans on social media as they either can’t contemplate such a scenario or are resigned to the possibility.
Twitter has gone into meltdown, and on Friday afternoon Kaizer Chiefs responded by posting a photo of Billiat with the Amakhosi4Life hashtag. Billiat himself has responded to the Tweet below.

How do we welcome Billiat back as Sundowns supporters after leaving the way he did? I don’t doubt that he’s a great player but I’m not keen to see him back because I won’t know how to welcome him.

Sundowns let Billiat go for free only to buy him for millions again?

Big Deal Around The Corner: Khama Billiat and Mamelodi Sundowns have agreed personal terms. The player will get in increase on his salary, as well as the signing-on fee. The only issue now is a transfer fee. Chiefs want over R20M, Sundowns started their bid at R15M, then R18M. pic.twitter.com/5MTlX0hcJ6

Let’s be honest,it’s all about the money from Khama Billiat and not desire anymore.He has won everything at Mamelodi Sundowns FC except the #MTN8.If he really wanted to stay,he would’ve done so when he decided to go to Kaizer Chiefs FC because they offered him R836,000.00 … pic.twitter.com/bvg95I4WDb
