A date has been set regarding when Mamelodi Sundowns has to confirm its decision on striker Jeremy Brockie’s future.
The forward was sent on loan to Maritzburg United for the 2019/20 season having struggled to break into coach Pitso Mosimane’s team, leaving him frustrated that he can’t do what he does best – play football and score goals.
But now that the campaign is coming to an end, Sundowns must decide before the end of this month whether they are taking up the option to extend his contract.
Brockie moved from crosstown rivals SuperSport United to Chloorkop in January 2018 with Mosimane keen to see him continue his scoring form at Downs.
“Sundowns have until the May 31 on all their options, so we’ve just got to wait and see. I must tell you, but I can’t mention names, there have been a couple of clubs interested – one of them a Top six that has shown extreme interest in Jeremy,” said Mike Makaab of Prosport International and represents Brockie.
“To be honest, I am not surprised because he has done incredibly well at SuperSport United and I just think he didn’t fit at Sundowns. This happens in football, I’ve seen it happen all over the world. Jeremy is a proven goal scorer and I am not concerned. I think all he needs is to get into an environment where he is played to his strength.”
Brockie scored more than 40 goals in just over a 100 matches for SuperSport during his spell there, and that is what put him on Sundowns’ wanted list.
He will be hoping to hear back from them as soon as possible to prepare for the upcoming season, and it is likely that it will be somewhere else.
