Pitso On Why He Is Replacing Brockie

Jeremy Brockie had “enough” opportunities at Mamelodi Sundowns but did not grab them, coach Pitso Mosimane told journalists this week.

The Kiwi striker is understood to be on his way out of Chloorkop in search of a fresh start next season, though he still has another year left on his contract as well as options to extend.

But following Mosimane’s comments, it now looks very likely that there may be no future for the man nicknamed ‘sniper’ by the coach. Brockie joined Sundowns from SuperSport United in January last year.

“Look, JB got chances. Let’s be honest. There are guys who never got chances. I don’t know why he is struggling, and I think it’s not just about him,” Mosimane explained.

“What killed him is that Lebo Maboe scored eight goals and became the top goal scorer at the club. Was I supposed to change him after scoring? Jeremy got suspended in the CAF Champions League and Lebo came in, and scored. So I went with him. Jeremy also got some niggling injuries, not available and sometimes I played even Thapelo Morena (a defender) up front to find a goal and he did. Where did that put Jeremy? Themba Zwane and Sibusiso Vilakazi also scored. When I played Jeremy, he wasn’t scoring. I am not saying he is not trying. He tries hard, he is a focused player, never sluggish – but it’s luck.”

Mosimane confirmed that Downs will also be on the hunt for a striker for next season to avoid using Maboe again, who is naturally an attacking midfielder.

“I think we need another striker. We need a No.9 because (Cuthbert) Malajila was killed by injuries and Ali Meza had passport issues and went to Venezuela at some point,” the coach said.
