Lucky Baloyi was in a jovial mood narrating the story of solidarity that is currently reigning in the Bloemfontein Celtic camp demonstrated by his teammates.

“Enjoying football and living in a cordial atmosphere on a regular basis injects some sense of belonging and pure happiness,” comments Bloemfontein Celtic’s industrious midfielder Lucky ‘Sheriff’ Baloyi about the companionship in the team. “I have not been in such a fantastic environment in a long time and I am convinced that I made the right decision to come here.”

He concurs though that winning brings more pressure to the team and expectations from both management and supporters. “Look, our recent performances are a true reflection of what has been happening at training. We are taking each game as it comes and are working towards achieving our goals without putting pressure unto ourselves,” reflected Baloyi.

Sherriff says there are no superstars at Celtic and reaching their goal is paramount as a way to appreciate the support they receive from all spheres. “Once you are bonded, you ultimately develop that telepathy and common understanding leading to better and progressive displays. Fortunately, we don’t have individuals who are superstars and egocentric; instead, we have players that are in unison and willing to fight for each other. Fuelling the desire to do well will always be the massive support we are getting from our faithful supporters, we really appreciate it” he concluded.

After their second consecutive win against Supersport United (in the Telkom Knockout Cup) and Maritzburg United (in the Absa Premiership), Celtic will face Platinum Stars on Saturday at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in the Telkom Knockout quarterfinals.
