Milestone For Downs’ Brazilian Star!

Mamelodi Sundowns defender Ricardo Nascimento has reached a milestone at the club after finishing four years with the team.  

Having joined the Brazilians in 2016, the 33-year-old centre-back is now recognised as one of the top defenders in the league for his contribution to the success of the former African champions.

“Yes, it’s now four years that I am playing for Mamelodi Sundowns, time does fly. I was playing in Portugal when I was approached by Sundowns to come and play here in South Africa. I was living in Europe and my decision was not easy, but I was impressed with South Africa at first sight. Then with Sundowns as a club, the team and its structure,” said Nascimento, as quoted on the club’s official website.

“And it gets better with time. I feel that there’s a lot of opportunity to grow. Every year the league is a new challenge and very competitive,” the Brazilian added.

About the hip injury that delayed his progress at the beginning of the 2019/20 season, Nascimento said, “It was the second injury and I lost half of the season. But I did the treatment in Brazil, which included efficient physiotherapy, which helped with my recovery.”
