Pasuwa backs Billiat for Europe move

Cape Town - Zimbabwe national coach Callisto Pasuwa believes that star forward Khama Billiat has all the attributes needed to succeed in Europe and that he should seek a move there as soon as possible.

Billiat, 26, had a disappointing 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) for the Zimbabweans, although he has been outstanding for Mamelodi Sundowns in South Africa's Premier Soccer League.

Billiat was also a key figure to Sundowns clinching the CAF Champions League last year.

Pasuwa is reportedly set to resign as Zimbabwe coach following the nation's exit in the AFCON group stages.

"I am one person who thinks it is now time for him to move to European clubs and he has done a lot for the SA league," Pasuwa told the Zimbabwean Herald website.

"He has proven he can do anything in a game.

"Khama is one player who doesn't have one dimension of play. He can easily change, he can dribble, he can play basic football which is one area he has got an advantage if things are tough for him.

"He can also go into dangerous positions and passes the ball very well."
