Cape Town - New
SuperSport United signing Michael Boxall says he was not at all surprised by
Jeremy Brockie's form last season as he prepares to link up with his compatriot
Brockie joined Matsatsantsa six months ago and took the PSL
by storm, bagging 10 goals in all competitions to help United to an eventual
sixth-placed finish in the Premiership.
United coach, Gordon Igesund, has since added another Kiwi
to his squad following the capture of Boxall, and while the forward knows
Brockie's form will increase expectations on himself, he insists he feels no
added pressure to perform.
"I've known Jeremy since we first played together about
nine years ago and we know each other very well," Boxall is quoted as
saying by KickOff.
"When he made his move and started banging in goals
right away I wasn't surprised at all. He's always had that goal-scoring nous
and can strike a ball as well as anyone I know."
He added: "I think how well Brockie has done may have
put some more expectation on myself, but I don't think there's anyone who puts
more pressure on my performances than myself."
