READ: Otladisa shocked by Downs move

Brockie this week completed a move to Sundowns from Tshwane rivals SuperSport United, having been on the Brazilians' radar for quite some time.

He told Downs' website: “My biggest motivation for joining Sundowns is their ambition. The ambition of the club is to win every trophy and every competition that they are involved in. I’ve spoken to coach Pitso Mosimane, the ambition and drive that he has to succeed really motivates and excites me. I can’t wait to start playing for him. When he talks about wanting to win the Champions League again, it gives you a good buzz. I would really like to have a good shot at that. Watching Sundowns win that trophy a couple of years ago makes me want to go out there and test myself in the Champions League, hopefully I can achieve the club’s goals and my personal goals.”

The New Zealand international, who plundered 54 goals in three years with Matsatsantsa, is relishing making his debut for Pitso Mosimane's side.

Brockie is in line to make his bow against Platinum Stars at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

“It’s a massive honour to be putting on the yellow shirt of Mamelodi Sundowns,” Brockie added. “There’s no secret that the club is full of history, it has a history of winning trophies. Recently they won the CAF Champions League. It’s exciting times for myself. I am looking forward to the opportunity of playing with some talented individuals. Watching the team lately really excites me. I am really looking forward to developing those relationships on and off the pitch with those players. It seemed like it dragged on forever. At some stage you wonder if the move was going to come. I’ve been thinking about it for a while now, to finally have it materialise feels great. I am looking forward to put on the shirt for the first time. I know that it’s going to be tough to crack into the side, there is a lot of depth and there are a lot of great players in the Sundowns side. But I believe in my ability and I will complement the team really well.”
