- Legendary goalkeeper Brian Baloyi believes that financial fair play should be considered in the Premier Soccer League
- The former Mamelodi Sundowns shot-stopper said that this was the only way for other teams to keep up with his former team
- The Brazilians have cantered to five consecutive league titles in a row while winning other silverware by the truckload
Legendary former goalkeeper Brian Baloyi has a simple but drastic solution to make the Premier Soccer League competitive again.
Mamelodi Sundowns has won five DStv Premiership titles on the bounce and, this looks like this will be the status quo until further notice. Baloyi believes that the financial fair play model must be considered in South Africa to make the playing field a little fairer to the other teams currently stuck in his former team's unending wake.
He said to TimesLIVE:
“My honest opinion is, there will never be anyone that will compete with Sundowns for as long as things are the way they are. Sundowns will keep on winning the league until something like what happened in England happens here.

“What is happening here is what Chelsea used to do back in the days [in the English Premiership] and then other clubs started wanting to do it but Uefa came with financial fair play. But if we don’t have financial fair play, no one will win the league [except Sundowns], they can try whatever Sundowns do, the simple things.”
“For me, this is the real issue and I have nothing against Sundowns and their owners, but if we want to have a competitive league then we will think about doing something in this way. All other people with money can come, [Shauwn] Mkhize and [Sandile] Zungu, but they can never compete with Sundowns at that level."
