Jeremy Brockie of Mamelodi Sundowns

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane has explained that the Brazilians didn't recruit Jeremy Brockie to dribble past players, but rather to put the ball in the back of the net.
The New Zealand international failed to hit the ground running at Chloorkop and only scored his first competitive goal for the club in a 3-1 win over Free State Stars in November.
Brockie had netted 54 goals in three years at SuperSport United before his move to the Brazilians in January.
The 31-year-old , though, has started to show signs of his old self as he now aims to pay back the trust showed in him by Mosimane.
Brockie netted a stunning volley in a CAF Champions League preliminary round win over Leones Vegetarianos last week and Mosimane is hoping for more of the same.
"His contribution is good. Brockie is not 'Mshishi' [Zwane]," Mosimane said as quoted by KickOff.com.
"We didn't buy him to come and dribble people. He is not Mshishi and will never be [Gaston] Sirino. He is a different kind of player.
"I don't know if you saw his goal in Equatorial Guinea. That's a sniper. Don't look for a playmaker.
"I am happy with what I have. I know what I have. I know what I brought [in]," he concluded.
