Some footballers don’t need to spend a long time at a club for them to be remembered fondly amongst that club’s fans. Some players leave their mark and are eternalised, and Igor Balis is one of those, living long in the memory of West Brom fans.

One West Brom fans took to Twitter with a picture of the club’s former Slovakian right-back, claiming that the club’s ex-defender was sending his best regards to the Baggies, and the supporters flocked to show their love and affection for the 49-year-old.

Balis only played a season and a half for the Baggies at The Hawthorns, signing from Slovan Bratislava in January 2001 before moving on to join Dunajska Streda in summer 2003 (Transfermarkt), but the 62 appearances and four goals he scored (Transfermarkt) were enough to ensure he’s still remembered to this day.

Will Slav guide West Brom back to the Premier League?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Baggies have got so much time for Balis, and will always look back on his time at the club fondly.
