Mamelodi Sundowns might be ABSA PSL champions, but they, like every other club have some problems. Striker Jeremy Brockie hasn’t scored a goal since completing his high-profile transfer from SuperSport in January and star player Khama Billiat is set to leave the team at the end of June.
Brockie insists he is not unduly worried about not having scored a goal for his new club yet and said he has faith his fortunes will change. “No, I’m not bothered at all,” he said.
Brockie noted that he joined halfway through the season and all the established players were scoring goals and winning games. He said his role was to motivate and push those players during training. Brockie said he just needed to stay patient and wait for his turn.
Briefly.co.za gathered that coach Pitso Mosimane is more concerned with the imminent departure of Khama Billiat. The striker is set to leave the club when his contract expires at the end of June.
Billiat has formed an integral part of the Sundowns team over the last five years.
Mosimane told KickOff.co.za that he would continue to try to convince Billiat to remain with the team. “You know me, I won’t stop trying to make him change his mind because where there is light there is hope. Anything is possible.”
Billiat joined the club in 2013 when he was only 22-years-old and the South African football fraternity raised their eyebrows at the price Mosimane paid for his services.
Five years later Mosimane feels every cent was worth it and said Billiat has some of the best touch of anyone in the country. Mosimane added that despite Billiat being small he was never bullied by defenders.
Sundowns will travel to Guinee to face Horoya AC on Tuesday in a CAF Champions League match.
