Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane is hoping that new
signing Jeremy Brockie will form a deadly partnership up front with Percy Tau.
Brockie arrived in the January transfer window from
SuperSport United after a lengthy courtship from Mosimane.
The New Zealand international, the most prolific scorer in
the PSL over the last three years, came off the bench to make his debut in
Sundowns' 3-0 weekend win over Platinum Stars, showing some nice touches up
front for the Brazilians.
Brockie was the top scorer in the CAF Confederation Cup with
10 goals last year and Mosimane is hoping he'll be equally impactful for
Masandawana in the 2018 Champions League.
"If he can score 10 goals for us in the Champions
League, eight should be able to make him top scorer. Ten will make him top
scorer in the Champions League. Hopefully he gets there," Mosimane was
quoted saying by KickOff.
The Sundowns coach went on to explain how he plans to get
the best out of Brockie, which involves linking up with the brilliant Tau.
"I hope he adjusts quicker. Where am I going to teach
Brockie to score the goals? We deliver the ball and he must do the job.
"All he has to do is free himself and make sure that he
is not disturbed and I think you know what he will do.
"SuperSport played with three midfielders, so here when
he has Percy next to him he will be totally different.
"I don't think he is the kind of striker who plays
alone, he needs support because you are going to kill him if you don't. Those
who play alone [up front] need to be quick or need to be able to dribble out of
trouble and he is not that [type of player].
"So when you spend money on a player like that, you
need to support him and you will get what you want."
