South Africa- Warriors and Kaizer Chiefs Star Khama Billiat is among the most valuable 11 in Africa, preached caution to the football fraternity towards the Covid-19 pandemic.
Billiat is one of the highest earners in the South African Premier league, with seven titles to his name. It comes as no surprise to see the former Aces Academy and Caps United man listed among the Africa’s finest.
“Its God’s grace and i always praise and give thanks to The Almighty for life and the ability to play football.
I also want to advice and encourage my fellow football colleagues to keep working hard during the Corona pandemic break”
“As the football fratenity let us all be cautious and do all what is needed to end this disease I believe this will end if we fight together, said Billiat who may have struggled with injuries during the 2019/20 season, but is still regarded as one of the most potent attackers in Africa.
According to Transfermarkt, the Kaizer Chiefs star is the third-highest valued player at €1.9 million (R37m) on the continent, only behind Pyramids talisman Abdallah El-Said and Al Ahly’s Mohamed El Shenawy.
The Egyptian goalkeeper is ranked as the most valuable with an estimated market valuation of €2.2m (R43m) and he’s joined by Ahly teammates Ali Maaloul, Hussein El Shahat and Mohamed Afsha in the XI.
Meanwhile, the Sundowns duo of Thapelo Morena and Andile Jali have both made the line-up among the most highly rated stars in Africa with valuations of €1.4m (R27.5m) and €1.2m (R23.6m) respectively.
Unsurprisingly North Africa dominates the list with Raja Casablanca, Esperance and Pyramids stars making up the rest of the team.
