Baloyi represented Chiefs for over a decade before joining rivals Rivals Mamelodi Sundowns in a blockbuster move in 2004.

What FFP simply means is preventing teams from spending more than they earn.

“My honest opinion is, there will never be anyone that will compete with Sundowns for as long as things are the way they are.” the Kaizer Chiefs legend said as quoted by Sowetan.

“Sundowns will keep on winning the league until something like what happened in England happens here.

“By the end of the first round whoever is second and third, they (Sundowns) buy your players and cripple you and you are not going to compete. They have been doing it consistently.”
