‘Sundowns Should Have Sold Billiat,’ says Assistant Coach Mngqithi! Billiat is on his way out at the end of the season most likely to move overseas. Downs risk losing him for free if they don’t sell him in the upcoming transfer window.
The club’s assistant coach however admitted that they made a mistake of not selling him when he was still hot and winning trophies.
“Personally I have a different view in keeping players. The same thing that I’m talking about myself would apply even to the players. When players have won everything with you, and you have read the All Blacks book which is called The Legacy, the best thing to do is to let them go so that you can start afresh and rekindle the fire, the power, desire and hunger,” he said.
“After winning the Champions League I would have sold Khama, I would have sold Themba and I would have sold my top players and started afresh. Currently you are not going to sell them at the right price because they have not won anything, but if we sold them right after winning the Champions League we would have made better money. We got more than R28-million for Keagan Dolly. The value was very high. I would have let go of those players.”
