Sundowns’ Brockie Aiding Foreign Issue
Mamelodi Sundowns are hoping to give themselves some more breathing room in the foreign quota department by trying to get Jeremy Brockie registered as a local player in 2018/19.
As reported in this week’s issue of Soccer Laduma, Brockie – who came to South Africa in 2014 – is believed to be in the process of applying for a PRP that could help the club in terms of the other players that Pitso Mosimane wants to squeeze into his plans.
The Brazilians currently have Toni Silva (Guinea-Bissau), Jose Ali Meza (Venezuela), Nascimento (Brazil), Bangaly Soumahoro, Yannick Zakri (both Ivory Coast), Gaston Sirino (Venezuela), Luis Miquissone (Mozambique), Fares Hachi (Algeria) and Razak Brimah (Ghana) on their books as foreign players, though have space for just five of them.
Silva and Ali Meza are both expected to be registered for the new campaign having only recently joined, while Nascimento is also likely to make it given his importance in 2017/18.
It remains to be seen whether Brockie will be successful in his attempts to secure permanent residence, however, Masandawana will be crossing their fingers as they look to make use of their plethora of foreign talent.
Which five foreigners do you want to see registered next season?
