SLTV TBT: When Brockie Reached Out To Chiefs’ Coach
In this week’s Throwback Thursday, Soccer Laduma goes back to more enjoyable times for Jeremy Brockie, after the player finally scored his first league goal for Mamelodi Sundowns.
The New Zealand international is currently being heavily linked with a move away from Masandawana after the player has been unable to find his feet since joining the club in January last year.
Despite being left out of the squad for their last seven league encounters, sometime this season, Brockie was optimistic about finally making his breakthrough with Sundowns, this after scoring his first league goal for the club in November last year.
At the time, Brockie spoke of the challenges he faced trying to get back to his best, even revealing that he had reached out to Bafana Bafana legend, Shaun Bartlett, who is now the assistant coach of Kaizer Chiefs.
Back in November, Brockie said, “Definitely, the pressure has been there and it has been disappointing from a personal point of view when I arrived at the club.
“I knew that it was going to be difficult making the move but I thought it would have been a little bit easier and smoother than it has been.
“To get the ball in the back of the net last night, it was a big weight off the shoulders. Ever since I arrived in South Africa I have scored goals consistently.
"I have had a lot of support from the players. I spoke to Shaun Bartlett a couple of times over the last couple of weeks and we all know what sort of player he has (been) and he has given me some good advice and being someone there to help me as well.”
Do you think Brockie should make the move away from Sundowns in order to find his goalscoring form again? Let us know in the comment section below.
