CAF Champions League

Castro To Miss Sundowns’ CAF Campaign?

Mamelodi Sundowns’ influential striker, Leonardo Castro, may be forced to sit out the rest of their 2016 CAF Champions League campaign due to injury.
 
 
The 27-year-old Colombian had to be taken off during the 3-1 MTN8 win over SuperSport United this weekend, and was later seen wearing a protective boot on the Sundowns bench.
 
Masandawana face ZESCO United over two legs next month for a spot in the CCL final in October, and Pitso Mosimane is worried that Castro will be unable to play any further part in their campaign to conquer Africa.
 
Speaking after the win over SuperSport, Mosimane said, "I think he will be out for the semi-final and I think we might finish the tournament without him because the injury was big. I hope he comes back for the final, because I believe we will reach it."
 
One plus for Castro is that he does have two weeks to try and recover from his injury during the international break, although Mosimane seems to think that it will take him longer to get himself back to full fitness again.
