Nurkovic pleased to be back


Kaizer Chiefs striker Samir Nurkovic says he's happy to be back and scoring after inspiring the Soweto giants to victory over Mamelodi Sundowns.

Nurkovic sustained a head injury in Chiefs' clash against AmaZulu towards the end of September, before he returned against Cape Town City last weekend.

"My job as a striker is to score as much as possible, to help the team, today was my day and I'm grateful, thank God," the Serbian marksman told SuperSport TV.

"It was a very difficult three weeks for me because I had this head injury, I feel good [now], I could not play with my head, finally I'm back on the pitch and I'm happy that I'm scoring goals and helping the team to achieve their goals," he continued.

"Everyone is wonderful, it shows that hard work pays off. I'm not on the pitch just to score goals, if I'm in a position to assist, my teammate is in a better position I'd rather assist him to score.

"Once again I'm grateful and I want to take this opportunity to thank the Amakhosi fans, without them it was going to be very difficult," he added.
