The forward hints that Masandawana may need to play to his strengths if they are to get the best out of him

Mamelodi Sundowns striker Jeremy Brockie has suggested that a change in approach may just lead to him finding the back of the net on a more consistent basis.

Since joining the Tshwane giants in January of 2018, Brockie  has failed to set the Premier Soccer League (PSL) scene alight at Chloorkop.

It was only recently that Brockie finally removed the burden off his shoulders as he banged in his first goal in a comfortable 3-1 rout over Free State Stars.

However, many have questioned just why the Sundowns forward has struggled to adapt to life in Tshwane.

Prior to joining Sundowns, Brockie had netted an impressive 54 goals over a three-year period for SuperSport.

Brockie has stated that his struggles may be down to the way Sundowns play. Under head coach Pitso Mosimane, Sundowns are seen as an effective ball playing team. This has taken some getting used to for Brockie.   

Nonetheless, the 31-year-year-old New Zealand born forward has called on Sundowns to adjust their game plan in order for him to fit into their system.

“The whole team is not going to change for me but obviously when I am playing there should be a little adjustment,” he was quoted as saying by Phakaaathi

Meanwhile, after breaking his duck Brockie will be keen to return from the international break and hit the back of the net on a regular basis.

Sundowns’ next test will be in the Caf Champions League preliminary rounds where they will face off against Equatorial Guinea outfit Leones Vegetarianos in the first leg on Tuesday.
