Kaizer Chiefs forward Khama Billiat believes that there is still room for improvement following a draw with Mamelodi Sundowns.
The two South African giants drew 1-1 in the opening game of the 2018/19 Absa Premiership season at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium in Pretoria on Saturday.
Zimbabwe international Billiat was named Man of the Match after tormenting his former Sundowns team-mates.
The 27-year-old attacker is eager to help end Amakhosi's three-year trophy drought.
“Firstly I want to thank God for this opportunity and the supporters who have come in numbers," Billiat said after the game.
"I know it has been tough for the past three seasons but it’s water under the bridge and we’re ready to start the league.
“It was a tough match, [Sundowns] is a good side I think we have done a lot of things we wanted to do and there’s still room for improvement," he continued.
"I want to thank the teammates, the club and the coach for those opportunities.
“We created not as many [chances] as we wanted to but there are moments where we could’ve taken our chances but it’s a learning curve," the forward added.
"We learn everyday. We take it positively. We are not too hard one ourselves we take it one game as it comes,” he concluded.
Billiat joined Chiefs from Sundowns on a free transfer last month.
