Mngqithi: Everybody Must Be Patient With Brockie
Manqoba Mngqithi Calls For Patience With Brockie
Mamelodi Sundowns assistant coach Manqoba Mngqithi insists everybody must remain patient with Jeremy Brockie.
The New Zealand striker is yet to find the back of the net since moving to Sundowns, while he endured a frustrating night against Free State Stars.
“I think it’s only natural for him to feel that way. At half time, we made him aware that we know what he’s capable of. He’s going to score a lot of goals for us but he must not rush," Mngqithi told SuperSport after the game.
"He must not get desperate because he starts to do things that are uncharacteristic of him. He wants to shoot on angles that don’t suit him but we know he has the capacity to help us. Everybody must be patient with him.”
Mngqithi admits he was worried when they went into the break with only a goal to the good, and knew the opponents would come out stronger, which they did.
“We got too many opportunities, and to be honest I was worried when we went to half time 1-0 up because I know that when you miss so many chances you likely to give confidence to people to come out and their second half was much better.
“Unfortunately in this game, you must understand God works in miracle ways. If you have had a very good first half and didn’t use your chances, chances are that the opponents might come out stronger and they did,” he said.
