Brockie Pens Emotional Open Letter

It has been a difficult season by his own admission and now Mamelodi Sundowns striker, Jeremy Brockie has broken his silence in an emotional open letter. Check it out.

Brockie’s stats for the 2018/2019 season do not make for good reading. Thirteen league appearances, one goal and one assist.  

The New Zealand striker has noticeably struggled to adapt to life at Chloorkop, after flourishing under more direct football at Supersport United.

Brockie took to Instagram to pen an emotional letter where he shares his thoughts and feelings on the season gone by.

The 31-year-old says that he feels he still has a lot to offer to South African football and that he will be taking a break to refresh and will return better and stronger.

Check out Brockie’s emotional letter:

* OPEN TRUTH ABOUT MY SEASON • The curtains have come down on another season here in South Africa - @sundownsfc crowned PSL champions for a second consecutive season being the main highlight for myself and the club 🏆🥇 Unfortunately for myself personally I didn’t achieve what I’d hoped for in terms of cementing myself in the starting 11 and being the go to man for goals. Before I joined Sundowns I was consistently playing and scoring and everyone including myself expected this to continue with ease when I made the big move...(which by the way was not for the figure that everyone thinks 💰💰). As you see all over the world, this sometimes happens and there are many factors that contribute to this (I’ll save these for another time). The main struggle for me has been trying to adapt to the Sundowns style of play ⚽️ Growing up as a kid all I wanted to do was play football and score goals. With limited game time (especially in the second half of the season) this has mentally been a massive challenge for me. I’ve had to be strong and not take my work issues home and let it effect my family.... this is sometimes hard when your 4 year old son always asks “why do you not play daddy?” It’s a real heart breaker for me👨‍👦💔 But I’ve tried to keep a brave face and take my mind away from the struggles - whether that’s kicking the ball in the back yard with Oskar, dancing and drawing with Piper and most importantly spending quality time with my love, Jessica. With all this being said I feel I can still offer a lot to South African football on and off the pitch and get back to being the “Sniper” everyone once feared ⚽️🥅 I’m taking a much needed break (mentally) and getting on a plane to Mauritius with my family soon to refresh and come back better and stronger 💪🏼🏖 Thanks to all of those who send the positive messages to me through social media - you also really keep me going!! 👏🏼👏🏼 Until next season...

Do you think Brockie should remain at Sundowns or leave for another club?
