Kaizer Chiefs star Khama Billiat says he has always wanted to play for Gavin Hunt and reckons he can bring out the best in him.

Hunt took over the reins at Amakhosi, following Ernst Middendorp's failed attempt at winning the Premiership last season, and Billiat is optimistic about the appointment.

"I've always wanted to work with him,” Billiat told his club's website.

"We have seen with him, while coaching other clubs, that no player is ever guaranteed to play. He's a coach who brings the best out of you.

"He makes players feel happy and that's what we needed. You can feel it at training, there is a different energy. He made clear what he expected from me."

Reflecting on the 2019/20 campaign, Billiat added: "We had a good season as a team. We came so close to winning the league. It means that we have the soldiers and the capacity to succeed. We have to challenge ourselves to do just a bit more.

"A new coach will bring in different things, which is good. Challenges always bring the best out of us, players. We all want to do better than last season."
