Billiat and Dolly will team up again when the midfielder
joins his new club, Sundowns, at the beginning of July.
The talented 22-year-old was bought by Downs in August last
year before being loaned back to Ajax, and Billiat believes Dolly's new
adventure will help him grow as a player.
"I believe that Keagan is good enough to make it at any
club in the country," He told Football411.com.
"And I think that he needed the move for bigger
challenges and bigger competition because we've all seen what he can do at
"He is a good player and I am confident that once he
gets here and continues to work as hard as I know him to, then there is no reason
why he won't play or succeed here.
"Here [Sundowns], there are many good players and the
only way to get into the team is to work twice as hard and if Keagan can do
that that he will make it here.
"I trust him and I believe there is a reason the coach
spotted him and wanted him to come here. He won't disappoint."
Dolly joined Ajax from Sundowns' academy back in 2012 having
impressed in the Metropolitan U/19 Bayhill Cup, and made his Urban Warriors
debut with an impressive cameo against Manchester United in the July 2012
He went on to make 58 appearances in his three seasons with
the club, scoring 5 goals in the process.
His most impressive season was the 2013/14 campaign where
his 24 appearances, coupled with 3 goals, saw him voted as the Premier Soccer
League's Young Player of the Season at the league's end-of-season awards.
The display also saw him break into the Bafana Bafana squad
ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations 2015 qualifiers.
