A former teammate of Jeremy Brockie has insinuated that the striker was unsuccessful at Mamelodi Sundowns because of his style of play.
Following his much publicised move to Sundowns from SuperSport United in January 2018, Brockie failed to replicate the form he enjoyed at Matsatsantsa which saw him scoring goals on a regular basis.
After the New Zealander’s loan spell in KwaZulu-Natal at Maritzburg United this season, the 32-year-old left Mzansi to go back home to be with his family.
Having played with Brockie at SuperSport and contributed to his success when he enjoyed a rich vein of form, former Sundowns attacking midfielder Dove Wome says the New Zealander’s style of play didn’t suit the way the Brazilians play.
“The way SuperSport is playing is very different and that’s why (Jeremy) Brockie didn’t make it at Sundowns. It was always going to be difficult for him because he is not mobile. He is just a finisher,” said Wome.
Brockie enjoyed playing with Wome and he was one of the first people to wish the Togolese success when he left Matsatsantsa to join Orlando Pirates, albeit on loan in January 2017.
