According to Soccer Laduma, Baloyi’s record of most appearances (409) in the Premiership was broken by ‘Slimkat’ this past 2014/15 season.

However, Baloyi reckons that goalkeepers are the players who trains more than the outfield players and says that he knows the kind of hard work Josephs has put in to claim that record.

“It takes a lot of hard work, dedication and a strong love for the game to be in the game for that long. I’d like to congratulate Moeneeb personally. When he matched my record, I was sitting at home with my boy. I had to tell my 10-year-old son that today my record was going to be broken.

“It’s a great feeling that my record has been broken by another goalkeeper. We keepers train more than outfield players. People don’t realise how much we put in.

Baloyi wishes the 34-year-old a lengthy career and hopes he will reach a further milestone in two years time.

“For Moeneeb to be still playing at the highest level, it shows the hard work. I hope he has another two or three seasons left in him. Let’s see him push that record to 500!”
