Brockie Breaks Silence After Sundowns Switch

His Mamelodi Sundowns exit is one that has been spoken about for months, and now Jeremy Brockie has broken his silence after sealing a loan switch to Maritzburg United.
 
 
The New Zealand international was the biggest deal on transfer deadline day in South Africa as Maritzburg made a late play to bring ‘Sniper’ on board for the 2019/20 season, and their attempts were successful as they got a deal done with Masandawana at the 11th hour.
 
Brockie, 31, will now be heading out to join his new teammates in Pietermaritzburg as they prepare for their next game on September 21, giving him time to get used to his new colleagues and reacquaint himself with his former SuperSport United coach, Eric Tinkler.
 
Speaking to the Siya crew after completing his move, Brockei said, “I’m very excited about this loan, I’ve always enjoyed playing at Harry Gwala since I arrived in South Africa - it’s a great stadium and the atmosphere can be absolutely electric. 
 
“I only worked with Coach Eric for a few months at SuperSport, and I was grateful to receive a phone call from him before I completed my loan, but it didn’t take much convincing because I just want to play football again!”
 
Meanwhile, regarding this spell with Sundowns, Brockie said, “It’s been so tough, I think that - when I signed for Sundowns - myself, the club and the fans all had a picture of what it was going to look like, and unfortunately it didn’t turn out as expected. This happens in football, but I’m very grateful to the president for allowing me to get some game time out on loan now.
 
 
“I always have a smile on my face through the good and tough times, but the smile is now bigger knowing that I’m going to be doing what I love, and that’s playing football. I hope to get back to myself, scoring goals and playing some good football, and I aim to help Maritzburg achieve their team goals by working hard, getting into the starting XI and then staying there.”
 
Despite a difficult time at Chloorkop, Brockie still has a record of 28 goals and 12 assists in 102 games in the Absa Premiership, and joins The Team of Choice having scored 55 goals for SuperSport and Sundowns since coming to Mzansi in 2015.
