Kaizer Chiefs legend Tinashe Nengomasha has advised Khama Billiat not to leave Amakhosi.

Khama Billiat has reportedly attracted interest from North African clubs after his impressive showing for Zimbabwe at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Nengomasha says Billiat shouldn’t be tempted by interest from other club and should stay at Chiefs for his second season.

“Billiat must remain at Chiefs. We do not want to see another Neymar situation with him. He’s at the peak of his career. I think the only move that he must consider is going to Europe,” Nengomasha told The Sowetan.

“Neymar now wants to return to Barca because he wanted money at PSG. Billiat must see that as a lesson. He seems happy in SA, he knows the league and his family is closer to him. I feel if he can move to North Africa, two years later he will regret.

“Chiefs showed him love by signing him and giving him reasonable salary, of which I do not know how much. But he must stay there and repay the faith by winning trophies,” he added.

“Sometimes money is not everything. North Africa is not an easy place, the culture is different.

“It’s not that SA players are not as talented, the difference is hunger. Zim players are hungrier than SA players. In Zimbabwe the economic situation is bad and when you get a chance to shine, you do not waste it because you know the struggle,” concluded Nengomasha.
