Jeremy Brockie says he wants to stay at SuperSport United as long as Stuart Baxter is the coach.

Brockie has had another excellent season in attack at Matsatsantsa, netting 17 goals in all competitions and there have been rumours linking him with a move to Kaizer Chiefs or Mamelodi Sundowns.

“I am happy here (at SuperSport),” said Brockie this week, however.

“I am really enjoying working under Stuart, he is improving my game and helping me become a better player. Hopefully as long as he is here, I can stick around, he is a good coach, so I am hoping he doesn’t move on soon but football can be a funny old world.”

Baxter joined SuperSport in January and has helped a side that was struggling under Gordon Igesund to get into the top eight in the Absa Premiership and reach the Nedbank Cup semifinals.

“He has brought a lot of structure and understanding of the game and the way we want to play, it is very enjoyable, all the players have smiles on their faces, there is a nice atmosphere before and after games. We are really learning a lot,” added Brockie.
