time with The Phoenix, but I wanted a new challenge, it will be a tough
challenge, but I'm up for it!"

player like Jeremy Brockie to SuperSport United, we have been following him for
a long time, I saw him play against Bafana Bafana, when we toured there, and I
am looking forward to seeing the qualities he has shown playing in the A League
and for New Zealand, in SuperSport colours".
