Jeremy Brockie to continue giving his all for SuperSport United, even if they block a move away

SuperSport United striker Jeremy Brockie insists he will continue giving his all for the club after they revealed he will not be sold this year.
Brockie has set the Absa Premiership ablaze since his arrival in 2015 and finished the recently-concluded PSL campaign as Matsatantsa’s top scorer with 15 goals to his name, including one in the Nedbank Cup final.
That form has attracted interest from some of the biggest teams in South Africa, including African champions Mamelodi Sundowns, Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates, although SuperSport are unwilling to part ways with their prized forward.
And while suggestions have been made that Brockie is disheartened by the fact he will not be joining one of the country’s most popular clubs, the forward insists he remains committed to the cause with the Tshwane club.
"I'm still contracted to SuperSport, I have another three years in my contract," Brockie said.
"It's not really in my hands, the club has put up a not-for-sale sign and I just have to leave it there. Obviously, there has been a lot of interest in me since the time I have been here. I have been doing a professional job and I do what I have been paid to do, which is to score goals. I will keep on concentrating on that."
The New Zealand international added that he has a good relationship with the club and will continue to build on that in the new season.
"Temptations are always there. During my career, I have had opportunities to go on and try and experience different things but I have said to [new SuperSport United] coach Eric Tinkler that the club has been good to me since I have arrived here and we have a good relationship, and I'm looking to continue building that relationship," Brockie said.
"I'm very happy here we have a good squad, a good bunch of boys and we are very close together. Sometimes the grass is not always greener on the other side.
"I can move to other club and find myself sitting on the bench and people will say, 'he is not a big-team player' but also, I'm not saying I will have to stay here because I'm in my comfort zone. I push myself and the boys push me every day and I'm enjoying my football here."
