Sundowns Assistant Coach: It’s Not Brockie’s Struggle, It’s Our Expectations
Mamelodi Sundowns Assistant Coach Thinks That Jeremy Brockie's Dry Goal Spell Is Because Of Nerves
Mamelodi Sundowns’ assistant coach, Manqoba Mngqithi thinks that Jeremy Brockie’s dry goal-spell is merely as a result of expectations and nerves.
Brockie is yet to open his goalscoring account for Masandawana, recently missing a few chances to get on the scoresheet in the Brazilians’ previous Absa Premiership encounter against Free State Stars.
“I don’t even think that it’s a struggle what he is going through, it’s our expectations,” Mngqithi said on Sundowns’ official website.
The assistant coach then went on to reveal that the team is trying hard to calm Brockie’s nerves, confirming their belief in the 30-year-old striker.
“Under normal circumstances a striker of Brockie’s quality, you would expect that if he doesn’t score in three or four matches he is still going to score goals. But the unfortunate part is that it is getting on his nerves. We are trying hard to calm him down and make him understand that we believe in him because we know what he is capable of,” he added.
