Kaizer Chiefs goal hunter Samir Nurkovic has confirmed that Absa Premiership defenders are highly committed to ending his goal- scoring threat.
The Serbian giant striker is the league’s joint-second top goalscorer with Bonginkosi Ntuli on 10 goals and therefore has become the subject of many defensive team talks.
While the 27-year-old Nurkovic is a proven clinical finisher, he has just as equally displayed high ability to bulldoze defenses with strong physical power to either score, assists and create spaces for the likes of Leonardo Castro and Dumisani Zuma.
“I have been feeling like I am being targeted since the beginning of the season. But it’s a normal thing – they are defending their goals, and I am trying to score,” he said via Soccer Laduma.
“Every game is different and every player reacts differently, but we will see as the season continues.”
“I thought I would win this award earlier for my first goal for the club (against SuperSport United in August), but I am still happy that it is for a goal I scored in my very first hat-trick for Kaizer Chiefs,” concluded Nurkovic.
Chiefs next visit Golden Arrows on Saturday afternoon at 15:30.
