Brockie remaining at SSU because of Baxter

Cape Town - SuperSport United forward Jeremy Brockie feels the arrival of coach Stuart Baxter has rejuvenated the Premiership club.

Since the turn of the year, Brockie has been linked with a move away from Matsatsantsa, with Tshwane neighbours Mamelodi Sundowns rumoured to be his next destination.

Although he is appreciative of the link, the New Zealand international insists he would turn down such a move as he is now enjoying the happier SuperSport team, following their disastrous first half of the season under former coach Gordon Igesund.

"It's obviously flattering to be linked with one of the big clubs. They have a good team," the 28-year-old was quoted as saying by Times Live.

"If you asked me this question a few months ago, then maybe it would have been a different answer. But since Baxter has taken over, he has brought new life to the squad and it's a much happier change-room.

"Baxter would be the main reason for me to stay at the club because he is a winner. He has revived things. We are having a much more enjoyable season than we were a couple of months ago."
