Lebogang Manyama has revealed that he always knew Kaizer Chiefs teammate Khama Billiat would one day be regarded as a footballing superstar.
The two former Ajax Cape Town attackers reunited at Naturena for the 2017-18 season and Billiat has taken little time to showcase his class following his move from Mamelodi Sundowns.
Billiat, 28, has directly contributed to nine goals in 11 games across all competitions this season and Manyama admits that he fellow Amakhosi attacker is the best player at the club.
"The best player at Chiefs, I think to be quite honest Khama Billiat has to be the most talented player out of us," Manyama told the SABC:
"I have known him since we got together at Ajax Cape Town. We arrived on the same day for trials and you could see from that day that he is going to be a superstar.
"I think just like in Cape Town, Chiefs is very professional, they have good bunch of talented players and the structure I have to say is on another level, probably one of the best in Africa."
