Brockie: What President Motsepe Told Me…

Jeremy Brockie revealed that Mamelodi Sundowns president, Patrice Motsepe was very supportive of his move to Maritzburg United.

The New Zealand striker was finally sent out of loan to Maritzburg for the 2019/20 season, this after things at Sundowns failed to work out for the player since joining the club in January 2018. 

However, in an exclusive interview with Soccer Laduma, Brockie opened up about his circumstances, adding that he is very grateful to President Motsepe for how his move away from Sundowns was dealt with in the final minutes of the July/August transfer window.

“Everyone was on the same page. I’m very grateful to the president of the club because he really understood my situation. I think he was gutted that things didn’t work out like he’d expected, like I’d expected, when I joined the club. He said he wants me to go and play football and start scoring goals again,” Brockie said.

“He sent me a really nice message after the deal was concluded and even said they look forward to watching me play for Maritzburg until the end of the season. I can’t thank the president enough for this move and I’m really grateful,” he added.

To read more on what Brockie had to say about:

• The misunderstanding about his ‘injury’
• Looking back at how he felt about joining Sundowns, to how he feels now
• Why he was open to taking a salary cut
