Axed Chiefs Star Makes Big Zwane Claim

A recently axed Kaizer Chiefs striker has made a big bold claim about the club’s new head coach Arthur Zwane.

Zwane has been given the difficult task of leading the Soweto giants back to the top of South African football.

He signed a three-year deal most recently and will look to end the club’s long trophy drought when the 2022/23 season gets underway.

Leonardo Castro, who parted ways with Chiefs has stated that Zwane doesn’t have much of a say in terms of player movement.

The Colombian striker said that the Amakhosi management signed and released players at the club, a claim Kaizer Jnr refuted not so long along.

“Coach Arthur was transparent, but things happened so fast in a short space of time. For him, I can say when you come from the development and they give you this big break, maybe he’s not fully in power,” Castro told Soccer Laduma.

“Let me make an example. If you bring a coach from overseas, the head coach is going to look at the squad and he’s going to bring the players that he wants. Right? For me, Arthur has been there with us for some time as an assistant under different coaches, so a lot happened in a short period after he was announced as a head coach. He cannot bring the players that he wants.

“Maybe they said he needs to work with these players or whatever. The economy is also not right at the moment. Coach Arthur wanted to keep some players and then the management said no, you know,” added Castro.

The 33-year-old said he left Chiefs in a good way and had a decent relationship with Zwane. I had a good relationship with him, the management and everyone at the club, so, I spoke to all of them before I left,” he said.

“I parted ways with Chiefs in a good way because I understood the team’s plans and I accepted the situation. I was professional with the team and you never heard anything wrong about my lifestyle or anything like that. Life is simple when you understand and accept the situation. That’s why it was easy for me to say goodbye to Chiefs."
