- Kaizer Chiefs striker Samir Nurkovic is overjoyed at his return to fitness and goal-scoring
- The Serb inspired the Amakhosi to victory over Mamelodi Sundowns over the weekend
- Nurkovic suffered a head injury against AmaZulu which ruled him out for three weeks
Mamelodi Sundowns hosted Kazier Chiefs in a crucial Absa Premiership clash on Sunday.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane vowed to hold the referees accountable when errors are made.
Mosimane stayed true to his word and voiced his dissatisfaction with the officiating as he felt his side was undone in the 2-0 loss to the Amakhosi.
One man who certainly was not complaining was Chiefs striker Samir Nurkovic, who inspired his team to an important victory.
The Serb forward scored both goals and revealed his delight at being back in action.
Speaking to SuperSport TV, Nurkovic said: "Everyone is wonderful, it shows that hard work pays off. I'm not on the pitch just to score goals, if I'm in a position to assist, my teammate is in a better position I'd rather assist him to score."
Briefly.co.za recalled that Nurkovic suffered a head injury against AmaZulu and the injury kept him out of action for three weeks.
The lanky target man is happy to be amongst the goals, but also expressed his appreciation for the support received.
Nurkovic added, "Once again I'm grateful and I want to take this opportunity to thank the Amakhosi fans, without them it was going to be very difficult."
