Cape Town - SuperSport United striker Jeremy Brockie says recent interest in his services has never affected his commitment to the Premiership club.

Brockie, 30, is widely considered as one of the most clinical strikers in South Africa due to his exploits since arriving at Matsatsansa in 2015 - scoring just over a goal every second game.

This season his tally of ten goals in the CAF Confederations Cup and four in seven games within the domestic scene has seen Tshwane rivals Mamelodi Sundowns track the signature of the New Zealand international.

"It was flattering seeing two big teams fight over me," Brockie told The Star over his sides unwillingness to negotiate terms with the Champions of Africa.

"I saw it as a compliment. It boosted my confidence. A lot of people thought it would disturb me but it did the opposite. I am driven to repay them for the faith that they have shown in me.

"I accepted their decision and focused on my game because I am a professional. My loyalty to them can’t be questioned."

Meanwhile a disciplined Matsatsansa performance saw them beat Club Africain 3-1 at the Olympic Stadium in Rades to advance to the CAF Confederation Cup final.
