Mosimane: I told Billiat to leave it

Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has told Khama Billiat to forget about winning this year's golden boot award and concentrate on playing well for the team.

The Zimbabwe international has been a key member of Mosimane's impressive squad throughout the campaign, scoring 10 league goals, just three behind leading scorer Collins Mbesuma, who has netted 14 times for Mpumalanga Black Aces this season.

"Khama has been very, very stressed in the last games; he wants to be top goal-scorer," said Mosimane.

"I pulled him aside and said 'leave it'. Leave it, this is done, it's not yours. When you first came, you scored four, you scored seven and 10 this season, so you are improving your number of goals.

"But you have a chance, the way you play, the way you give your heart, a chance to be the Footballer of the Year or the Players' Player of the Year'.

"He's missed a lot of chances because he's been too anxious. It worked a little bit with Keegan [Dolly] playing up front.

"Khama is at another level. OK, he's young, he makes a lot of mistakes instead of scoring the goals, but he is very important for us and he has been very important throughout the whole season. And with that small body, I give him credit."
