Grobler's dad: Brad to Bucs not a given

Mamelodi Sundowns

Former Moroka Swallows striker Les Grobler says his son Bradley Grobler has a tough decision to make regarding his future with SuperSport United.

The Bafana Bafana striker is expected to leave SuperSport United in the January transfer window, with Orlando Pirates or Mamelodi Sundowns believed to be his likeliest destinations.

But his father Les says the decision his son needs to make is not as easy as everybody thinks.

"With regards to Bradley, I think it's fantastic for him," he tells KickOff.com.

"I am sure if he had not had all these injuries in the past, this interest would have come sooner. It's difficult to say if he should go or stay. That decision is one that may not be as simple as it looks.

"He is happy at SuperSport, he is playing, so that is important at this stage of his career. With all the injuries he has had, he feels he has missed out on a lot of football and is happy to be playing.

"Although he backs his ability to play at another team, there are no guarantees that this will happen. Also sometimes a team just suits you as a player. This just adds to the complicated decision that may or may not await him. So all in all a tough decision. But time will tell us what happens."
