In July this year, Celtic announced three of their players would don the captain’s armband for the side in the 2019/2020 league campaign. Baloyi, Ndumiso Mabena and Wandisile Letlabika are all captains.
Although Mabena has been the one to wear the captains armband out of the field in these matches Baloyi says that leading his teammates is not only about doing it on match-day. The 28-year-old describes the set-up at Siwelele Park as “amazing”.
Captaining a squad size of 38 players Baloyi says other senior players like Lantshene Phalane and Tshepo Rikhotso also play a vital role in leading the side.
From their four Absa Premiership matches this season the side has only picked up four points.
The former Chiefs man from Mokopane in Limpopo shares that they need to be consistent this season.
He adds that they are worried to have only picked up one victory from four matches played.
Celtic last lifted a cup back in 2012 when they won the Telkom Knockout Cup after beating Mamelodi Sundowns 1-0 in Durban. Baloyi says they owe their supporters silver wear this season. – Report by Tshenolo Meruti
