Kaizer Chiefs forward Khama Billiat says the club want to win the Nedbank Cup for the supporters, stating that the fans ‘deserve better’ than they have received in recent times.

Amakhosi booked their spot in the Nedbank Cup final on Saturday night, thanks to a 4-2 win over Chippa United.

Billiat was in imperious form in the victory as he scored a long-range screamer, while also providing two assists at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

Speaking after the game to SuperSport TV, Billiat admitted that Chiefs haven’t had a great season, and the Nedbank Cup provides them with a chance to give something back to the fans.

‘Firstly, I want to thank the coach, I want to thank God, I want to thank the chairman and Amakhosi supporters who have been patient with us,’ said the Zimbabwean.

‘It hasn’t been a great season, but they deserve something. Hopefully we won’t just be part of the final. We want to take it home. The fans deserve better. We want to boost confidence for next season.

‘This award is for our supporters. It really means a lot to us, the support they give us throughout the games even if sometimes we have bad games. But they are always there for us, giving us confidence.

‘I always knew that this is a team to win trophies with. We don’t want to get carried away,’ added Billiat.

‘We have to prepare, we still have games in between. Hopefully when it comes to the final, we are all ready to give the fans a smile at the end of the final.’
