Brian Baloyi: Why Legendary Keeper Left Kaizer Chiefs

Johannesburg - After a 16 year period within the ranks of Amakhosi - legendary keeper Brian Baloyi has finally terminated his contract at Naturena. 

The 44 year-old returned to Chiefs two seasons ago and played a role as assistant to the late goalkeeper coach Alex Revoredo, and many had no idea the marriage will come to a sudden end.

His role suddenly became questionable after Chiefs appointed Lee Baxter as head of goalkeeping in February.

However, Baloyi has revealed his next destination. 

"I will be pursuing other business ventures. I will also be embarking on goalkeeping development programmes. I grew up at Chiefs and I will forever be grateful to the club for the opportunity to get to where I am today," said the former Chiefs captain and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Baloyi.

Chiefs boss Kaizer Motaung announced on Tuesday that Baloyi's contract will expire at the end of the month and it will not be renewed.

"I wish to thank Brian for his contribution during his return to the club which is his home‚" said Motaung.

"When we brought Brian back in the fold we had intentions to have a longer engagement‚ but he recently indicated a willingness to pursue other ventures. We gave him our blessings and we will continue to collaborate with him going forward."

Motaung said the club would continue to work with Baloyi when the need arises.

"I wish to bid Brian farewell and success in his new endeavours. We look forward to continue working with Brian and on collaborative efforts to improve the goalkeeping area in our country‚" concluded Motaung.
