The football transfer market is just around the corner and the market cannot open at a better time than now for most football clubs.Khama Billiat loses a massive R8 million!
That is because the market value of most players has been forced into a downward spiral due to the raging Covid-19 pandemic.
The biggest dropper in the South African football league is Kaizer Chiefs play maker Khama Billiat.
Billiat has lost a massive R8 million since the Covid-19 lockdown brought a halt to soccer action.
According to transfermarkt, Billiat was priced at an astounding R38 million before the lockdown began. He is now priced at R30 million.
Billiat has in the past been criticized for focusing more on his social life and being a pale shadow of himself on the football pitch.
He was literally an icon at Sundowns were coach Pitso Mosimane still speaks very highly of him.
But he has failed to live up to expectations at Amakhosi.
Former Bafana Bafana captain Itumeleng Khune has also seen his stock price falling by R7 million. He is now priced at just R16 million.
His failure to secure game time after his lengthy injury has been another factor.
