Khama Billiat will be out of action for the rest of the year after sustaining a hip injury last Saturday.
The winger had to be subbed off in the 88th minute during Kaizer Chiefs’ victory over Madagascar’s Elgeco Plus in the CAF Confederation Cup encounter.
The club announced the injury update in a statement posted on their official website.
“Khama Billiat was clearly experiencing some discomfort before being substituted in the 88th minute during Kaizer Chiefs’ victory over Madagascar’s Elgeco Plus on Saturday,” reads the post.
“The medical report confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that Khama has a hip adductor muscle strain. He will be rested for two weeks to recover.”
The development means the 28-year-old will not travel with the team to the Indian Ocean island this weekend for the second leg match.
He has so far contributed three goals and two assists in this season of the interclub competition.
