In search of that elusive goal scoring number nine, we have signed a host of strikers in the last couple of seasons and will no doubt continue in that fashion until that problem is solved.
Coach Stuart Baxter even went as far as searching the United Kingdom for a hitman, with Englishman James Keene currently undergoing a trial at Naturena.
However, SuperSport United seem to have found a gem in the dangerous Jeremy Brockie, who seems to be thriving in South African football. Should we have a look at this striker with the hope of signing him?
Brockie was inspected by SSU coach Gordon Igesund while he was in charge of the Bafana Bafana national team last year when the squad was on tour in Australia and New Zealand.
The New Zealand international hit the ground running in the Absa Premiership, displaying fine technique, pace and, most impressively, an eye for goal.
Brockie has already done what most of our strikers were unable to do all season long, and that is score goals when it really matters. Names like Siphelele Mthembu, Katlego Mphela and Matthew Rusike are not showing any signs of improvement, and with a player like Brockie adjusting so well in the league, I don’t see any reason why we can’t have a look at the Matsatsantsa hitman.
Having played in six Absa Premiership games this season, Brockie has managed to find the back of the net on three occasions so far - one of which was a goal that ended our unbeaten run in the league.
With a goal rate better than some of our best strikers at the club, should we consider signing Brockie some time in the future?
