Cape Town - SuperSport United forward Jeremy Brockie says coach Gordon Igesund is starting to change the way the club plays football after he recruited the players he wanted.

Igesund took over at the Tshwane club in September 2014, and steered them to a sixth-place finish.

Brockie joined the club in January and was an immediate hit, scoring 10 goals in the second half of the season.

The New Zealand-born Brockie has not exactly hit the ground running in the new campaign, though, but says the coach has brought in new signings that changed their approach to matches.

"It has slowly changed over time," Brockie told Goal website.

"I guess when Gordon first took over he had to work with the players that were there but now he’s brought in some very experienced players in very key positions so we feel that we can keep the ball a lot more now and create opportunities that way instead of just going direct.

"I don't think the way I play has to change. Obviously we have got players like Dean Furman and David Mathebula who can keep possession very well for us and sort of control games.

"But in saying that we do have a lot of good players who like to go forward more: Kingston (Nkhatha), Dove (Wome) and the list goes on. So when the timing is right we can keep the ball."
