New Mamelodi Sundowns signing Jeremy Brockie says the major reason he joined the club is because he shares the same ambitions with that of the Chloorkop-based club.

The New Zealand international left SuperSport United with just four goals away to being the club’s all time leading goal scorer, however that did not get the better of his ambitions of winning more silverware with Sundowns whom he believes will help him achieve that.

“The club is very ambitious. They want to win every competition they play in, and most recently they won the African Champions League and they want to give it a go and get back to the FIFA club world cup again. As a player, when you hear ambitions like that, they match yours, your own personal goals. Hopefully I can continue to win silverware,” said Brockie.

The striker who has been on Pitso Mosimane’s radar for a long period went on to reveal that winning silverware with his former club gave him the hunger to win more trophies and that would only happen if he would get out of his comfort zone and be challenged to push harder, which he will get at Sundowns who have big name players all round, where no player is guaranteed a starting berth.

“That’s a big reason behind my move. I feel I needed a fresh challenge to get out of my comfort zone. I know I am going into a change room where there’s a lot of quality players and I am going to have to fight for my spot, even on the bench. That makes you want to improve and get rewarded,” Brockie went on to say.

The player who is known as “The Sniper” is expected to make his debut for his new coach Pitso Mosimane who titled him as that when Sundowns host Platinum Stars who are on the opposite end of the table on the league log this coming weekend.
