Warriors forward Khama Billiat has finally returned after his absence from the team when he sustained an injury during a South African Premiership on January 9.
The 30 year old is now back in training and is looking forward to return to his best, for both club and country in the coming months.
The Kaizer Chief man hailed warriors for qualifying for AFCON adding that it will be a pleasure for him to represent his country.
“It was great to see Zimbabwe qualify for AFCON last weekend. Hopefully, I will come in and join the team and match the level of fitness required by the team.’’ He told his club’s official website yesterday.
He added that in the last few months it was hard for him but now he is happy to be back and that he was now fit for the game.
“It has been difficult. We are professional footballers and we always want to contribute by playing through hard, and good times, so you can grow as a person. I got injured against Maritzburg United and I never saw it coming. I have never been in a situation where I have had to miss so many games.
“It was difficult for me. I thought I would push myself harder, and come back as soon as possible, but I understand that everything happens for a reason. I thank God for the strength, and I feel better at the moment. I am back, hopefully, the coach will give me a chance.
“Thankfully I am training with the team. I just need to work on my fitness. As a player, it’s your mentality, and how hard you work, so you can contribute in team.” said Billiat.
Meanwhile, Warriors coach, Zdravko Logarusic, is reported to have flown back home to Croatia after helping the team qualify for the next AFCON finals.
Loga was in his home country, until he flew here in January, to finalize the preparations for the Warriors who will take part at the CHAN finals, in Cameroon.
