I would love to go back to Downs – Jeremy Brockie


After setting the SA top-flight football scene alight for three years in the colours of SuperSport United with some scintillating performances, Jeremy Brockie moved to Mamelodi Sundowns in early 2018 but struggled to replicate his form in front of goals at Chloorkop.

Brockie is on loan at Maritzburg United to rediscover his form which saw him score 41 goals and provide 15 assists in 105 matches for ‘Matsatsantsa’ and help the side win several cup competitions: two Nedbank Cups and an MTN8 title.

The Kiwi striker admits that he didn’t perform well at Sundowns and hopes to get a second chance.

“At the moment, I am coming to the end of my contract with Sundowns, but they have an option to extend, still two, one-year options, so that exercise has to be taken or declined by the end of May, so this month I’m just sitting around, waiting to sort of hear what happens next to my career,” said Brockie.

“I would love to go back to Sundowns and give it a second shot and hopefully things would be different second time around, I painted a move in my head when I made the move there – for me going to go there contribute to winning the league titles and scoring goals – but it didn’t happen,” he added.

The 32-year-old only managed to score two goals and provide two assists in 32 appearances for ‘The Brazilians’.

“Maybe I needed this year away at Maritzburg to sort of refresh and re-energise and go back there and give it another shot but also at the same time I know that I haven’t performed in the time I was there so maybe they decided to decline that.” – Brockie. Picture courtesy of Maritzburg United. 

“So, it is not really in my hands at the moment, we are waiting for an email to come through, you come back for your second chance or you are free to go and find another club and discuss terms with another club, so at the moment, it is in Sundowns’ hands and I will wait to see what they decide,” added Brockie.
