Cape Town - Jeremy Brockie admits his time at Mamelodi Sundowns has been "tough" but is looking forward to playing "some good football" in his loan spell with Maritzburg United.

Brockie sealed a loan move to the Team of Choice ahead of the transfer deadline on Monday after not getting much time on the field since joining the Brazilians from Supersport United in the 2017/18 season. The 31-year-old struggled at the Tshwane club, scoring eight times in 27 appearances, but is now looking to put that all that behind him.

Brockie said in quotes published by Soccer Laduma: "It's been so tough, I think that - when I signed for Sundowns - myself, the club and the fans all had a picture of what it was going to look like, and unfortunately it didn't turn out as expected.

"This happens in football, but I'm very grateful to the president for allowing me to get some game time out on loan now.

"I always have a smile on my face through the good and tough times, but the smile is now bigger knowing that I'm going to be doing what I love, and that's playing football.

"I hope to get back to myself, scoring goals and playing some good football, and I aim to help Maritzburg achieve their team goals by working hard, getting into the starting XI and then staying there."

Brockie is eager to hit the ground running with his new club after the international break. The forward continued: "I'm very excited about this loan, I've always enjoyed playing at Harry Gwala since I arrived in South Africa - it's a great stadium and the atmosphere can be absolutely electric."
