Nurkovic: Everybody Knows I Had A Lot Of Problems

Kaizer Chiefs striker Samir Nurkovic says he is working hard to rediscover his form of last season, which saw him endearing himself to the Amakhosi faithful.

Nurkovic bagged a brace in the first leg of the CAF Champions League quarterfinal clash against Simba last weekend, inspiring the Soweto giants to an impressive 4-0 lead of the Tanzanian outfit. 

Those two goals took Nurkovic's goal tally for the season to four goals in all competitions. Last season he scored 14 goals in all competitions.

"Every football player comes a time where the form is dropping, but as everybody knows I had a lot of problems at the beginning of the season. I missed a lot of games. It was difficult, but I am trying my best and working hard to reach my form of last season," he told the Amakhosi media department.

"As an individual, I am always working hard and I want to always achieve the best possible result. So far so good for us and I am happy for myself and the team because everybody is really working hard and giving their best to achieve our goals."

Chiefs have one foot in the semi-finals, but need to ensure they get the job done to avoid the embarrassment of throwing away a four-goal lead. 

"It's an amazing feeling from the last game. We are excited and looking forward to the second leg. We are preparing and doing everything to go to the semis," Nurkovic told the Amakhosi media department.

"There's not so much time to do a lot of things. We just have to stay focused with the same fighting spirit from the last game and continue with the same performance and everything will be fine. We need to be 100 percent focused on our game and how we are going to play and how we are going to perform on Saturday."
