Dolly excited to reunite with Billiat and Castro


Kaizer Chiefs introduced Keagan Dolly on Tuesday and he says he can’t wait to be reunited with Leonardo Castro and Khama Billiat to re-establish the famous ‘CBD’ attacking trio.

Dolly is eager to recreate the halcyon days with former Mamelodi Sundowns teammates Billiat and Castro now that they are all at Naturena.

The ‘CBD’ played an instrumental role in Sundowns’ 2016 Caf Champions League triumph and league success – tearing apart defenders in the 2016/17 season.

The 28-year-old winger says he is delighted to reunite with both players. “We are still quite close. We speak quite often, myself and Khama,” he said.

“And it’s exciting times to play again with them. I always thought that we had a good connection back when we played together at Sundowns.

“But hopefully now we can just bring all that we’ve learned throughout the past couple of seasons, that we played in our different clubs, and we can just come back together and work hard for the team and score more goals and just encourage each other.”

Dolly, who revealed that he started supporting Chiefs at the age of five has been handed the famous No.10 jersey at the club.

“Since I was young my father introduced me to Kaizer Chiefs. We supported Kaizer Chiefs since the age of five. I would watch the likes of Shoes Moshoeu (May his soul rest in peace). I grew up watching Stanton Fredericks and Jabu Pule,” added Dolly.

“I even used to dye my hair like Jabu Pule when I played for Westbury Arsenal. I know what the club is about and the mentality of the club. I am happy to be finally settled in and looking forward to starting my career with Chiefs.

“Me coming back to Chiefs I want to share my experiences with the youngsters at Chiefs. I watched [Happy] Mashiane and [Nkosingiphile] Ngcobo playing. They looking very good. I will try to give my advice where I can.”
