Grobler's agent talks Chiefs interest


Player of the moment Bradley Grobler's agent discusses in detail the latest regarding the big three's interest in his client.

SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews recently said it was up to the Bafana Bafana striker if he wants to leave for long-time admirers Orlando Pirates.

One of the conditions to open the door for Grobler's exit was to win a trophy in the first half of the season, which has been achieved in the form of the MTN8.

Grobler's agent Sean Roberts says the last time he heard of the interest from The Buccaneers was three months ago.

"[Since] June, July nothing you know, obviously there was lots of interest from Sundowns and Pirates but nothing materialised," he tells

"Obviously the fine form that he's been in has obviously created more demand but he is a SuperSport player you know, nothing is going to change. January something might change but he is a very professional player, you know what I mean. It's not going to affect his performance or anything like that."

Chiefs are also rumoured to have joined the race for the goalpoacher, and Roberts commented on which team his client would be willing to join should all of the big three be an option in January.

"That's a tough one hey, I mean it's a tough question, and that's up to the player. But as I said right now he is focused on SuperSport and winning more trophies, scoring more goals. I don't even think he's thinks about anything. I think he's just focused on SuperSport.

"Look I mean the SuperSport style of play fits Bradley perfectly, you know what I mean. So for him to leave SuperSport it needs to be very worthwhile, but like I said he's really focused one hundred percent on SuperSport and I'm sure SuperSport are going to come to the game and extend his contract anyway.

"But who knows? [Laughs] Man I know Kaizer Chiefs have always been a fan of him but I don't think... they haven't shown any interest lately if you know what I mean. I don't think so, I think they've got enough firepower up front to be honest.

"But again if Bradley keeps on scoring like he's scoring and keeps on playing like he's playing, I don't see why every team won't want him because he's playing amazingly well at the moment."

Roberts says there are couple of factors that made the the player's move to Pirates fail at the beginning of the season.

"Nothing since August you know, there were a couple of factors involved, which I can't really go through. But it just fell through last minute, and you know everything happens for a reason, but I believe it fell through for the right reasons because look at the form now Bradley has found you know.

"I think Bradley's still got four, five years left easy. He's doing a lot of work on himself outside of football, and you can see the difference on his body now. He's a top striker so he's able to adapt... I think most of the best players in the world are able to adapt to anything. So if the right offer comes along, and Bradley is happy, and he feels he can fit in that style of football, then we'll look at it for sure."
