Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Yusuf Maart has revealed what Khama Billiat told him ahead of his wonder goal in the Soweto Derby.
Maart netted the only goal of the afternoon after spotting Siyabonga Mpontshane off his line in the 74th minute.
When asked whether he saw Mpontshane was being off his line, Maart revealed that it was Billiat who told him to check on the Pirates goalkeeper.
“The first opportunity I passed Khama the ball and Khama told me ‘check the goalkeeper, he’s from his line’,” he told Julia Stuart on SuperSport TV after the match.
“The second time, Khama intercepted the ball and I already looked up and I just hit it direct.”
Maart also believes that his goal will go down in the derby annals and be shown to future generations.
“I think, to be honest with you, a derby game is always a memory and is always something good. I think it will stay in the history books of the derby games and eventually they will show other people in the future what the derby means,” he added.
The win saw Chiefs overtake Orlando Pirates on the log ahead of the FIFA World Cup break, with the Amakhosi climbing to 21 points and the Buccaneers staying on 19.
