Kokota: It was very painful to watch


Samir Nurkovic says he is delighted to be back on the field helping Kaizer Chiefs after watching from the sidelines earlier in the season.

The Serbian missed the first few games as he was recovering from surgery, but his return to the side has culminated in three successive victories in the DStv Premiership.

“It feels a little bit good. The feeling is unbelievable. Once again I want to say that after three tough months for me through surgery, the recovery I’m happy to be on the field and to help the boys as much as possible,” Nurkovic told SuperSport TV.

“I mean, the quality was always there with me or without me, the boys are in the best club in the country and obviously they are quality.

“It’s just we need that extra motivation, it was very painful to watch from the sidelines and I’m really happy to be finally back on the field because this club Kaizer Chiefs deserves nothing else than victories. Every victory and hard work is for them so this award is for them. For all the Amakhosi family,” he further stated.

On whether his style of play differs now that there is a new man at the helm to when Ernst Middendorp was in charge last season, there is none while weighing in on the assist to Ngcobo.

“No, my style of playing football is always the same but I’m on this continent than the other so it’s the same. So I’m trying to help as much as possible the team to contribute as much as possible to the victories and obviously I’m up front to score goals and assist goals and to help them,” he said.

“It was a nice run from the little star. He is a star, the future for Kaizer Chiefs. I saw him and I just flick on and after that he did the rest. Amazing run he made there and congratulations to him,” the forward concluded.
