Jeremy Brockie says the desire to win many trophies motivated him to leave SuperSport United and join Mamelodi Sundowns.

The New Zealander completed his move to the Brazilians on Monday in a deal believed to be worth R12 million thereby ending speculation about his future.

“My biggest motivation for joining Sundowns is their ambition. The ambition of the club is to win every trophy and every competition that they are involved in,” Brockie told the Sundowns website.

“When he talks about wanting to win the Champions League again, it gives you a good buzz. I would really like to have a good shot at that. Watching Sundowns win that trophy a couple of years ago makes me want to go out there and test myself in the Champions League, hopefully I can achieve the club’s goals and my personal goals,” added Brockie.

“It’s a massive honour to be putting on the yellow shirt of Mamelodi Sundowns,” Brockie continued.

“There’s no secret that the club is full of history, it has a history of winning trophies. Recently they won the Caf Champions League. It’s exciting times for myself. I am looking forward to the opportunity of playing with some talented individuals.

“Watching the team lately really excites me. I am really looking forward to developing those relationships on and off the pitch with those players. It seemed like it dragged on forever, at some stage you wonder if the move was going to come.

“I’ve been thinking about it for a while now, to finally have it materialise feels great. I am looking forward to put on the shirt for the first time. I know that it’s going to be tough to crack into the side, there is a lot of depth and there are a lot of great players in the Sundowns side. But I believe in my ability and I will complement the team really well,” concluded Brockie.
