According to Soccer Laduma, the New Zealander knows that Matsatsantsa brought him to rattle the back of the net and has already set himself a target.

“I’ve been brought here to score goals, and I know that that’s my job,” said the 27-year-old.

“I set my goals at the start of every season, and if I can get seven or eight before the end of the season I’d be really happy with that.”

Before he made his move Brockie was concerned about his international future but the striker reveals that he spoke to All Whites national coach, Anthony Hudson, and the coach urged the striker to do something out his comfort zone.

“He said the only thing that will affect my spot in the national team is if I’m not scoring goals or I’m not performing when I’m away with them.”

Brockie is yet to receive his work permit before he can don the SuperSport colours in the PSL.
