Brockie thankful for SSU backing


Matsatsantsa yesterday publicaly stated that they would not be selling the New Zealand striker at any price following reported interest from Mamelodi Sundowns. 

Brockie welcomes the backing and adds he looking to build on last season’s Nedbank Cup success.

“It makes one feel good and that one is appreciated and needed at the club,” he tells of the SuperSport announcement. “I’m very happy here and would like to achieve more success as I work with a fantastic bunch of lads.

“I mean, if you look at the energy we showed during the second half of the season … no-one expected us to do so well but we did. We won the Nedbank Cup and secured a top eight spot.” 

Brockie feels there is no reason why SuperSport cannot build on last season’s success and challenge for the League title next season.

“We have a winning coach in Baxter. He has shown this in the past before with Chiefs,” he adds.

“We have also recruited some experienced players during the transfer period, so that just proves the coach’s intentions that we want to achieve more success next season.

“We have a good mix of experience and young players and I think there will be more good signings to come.”
