Grobler Unaffected By Failed Pirates Move – Tembo

SuperSport United head coach Kaitano Tembo has commented on the situation of his side's main striker Bradley Grobler, who has been linked with a move to Orlando Pirates.

Pirates courting Grobler has been ongoing for the last few seasons and the Siya crew previously reported that the Buccaneers have made several attempts to land the Bafana striker, but to no avail.

It seems that the situation will remain unresolved once again this season, as the 32-year-old has turned his focus to Matsatsantsa, continuing where he left off last season as he scored in his side's 3-2 win over Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila in the MTN8 last weekend.

Speaking to the media in a virtual press conference, Grobler's coach Tembo maintains that it is business as usual for the club's top goalscorer, despite his failed move to the Buccaneers.

“Look Bradley is a professional and what’s important is for him to be happy here and I think he’s happy. Irrespective of what might happen and what might not happen. He's always stayed professional, who know that his value is always maintained by him performing well," Tembo said.

The Zimbabwean is confident that the failed move will not hamper the striker's form this season, and that he will replicate his feats of last season, where he enjoyed his best ever goal return in the top flight.

“I don’t see any problems and I never thought I would see any problems because I know the type of player that he is and I anticipate another good season in terms of his form and scoring goals.

"Remember Bradley is not only important for us in terms of scoring goals. He’s also important in terms of our attacking structure. He’s what we need in terms of leading our front line,” Tembo added.
