Castro Happy To 'Do The Job' For Chiefs

Leonardo Castro Happy To Help Kaizer Chiefs "Move On" From Soweto Derby Loss After Nedbank Cup Win

By Ryan Gordon - Mar 11, 2018 12:32 PM
Kaizer Chiefs striker Leonardo Castro is relishing his chance at regular first-team football and hopes he can continue doing the job for Amakhosi.
 
 
The Colombian signed on with the Soweto giants from PSL rivals Mamelodi Sundowns in January and already has three goals to his name, including Chiefs' second in the 2-1 win over Stellenbosch FC in the Nedbank Cup on Saturday.
 
The result, which earned the Naturena giants their place in the quarter-finals, was welcomed with open arms after having gone down to bitter rivals Orlando Pirates in the Soweto derby.
 
 
"This night, there was a chance for us to move on (from Soweto derby loss) so we take the chance and move on to the next game," Castro told SuperSport TV after the game.
 
"This is part of soccer: sometimes you lose, sometimes you draw, sometimes you win, and today we won.
 
"We need to keep this spirit and move on."
 
When asked how he is settling in at Amakhosi since arriving from Sundowns, Castro said: "For me, it was easy because I know the soccer [that Chiefs play].
 
"I was not playing that much [at Sundowns] so now I'm happy I'm playing.
 
"I've got my confidence back, I did my job, that's why Chiefs brought me here."

Very hardworking player. We just need a new coach to play Ntshanganse behind Moon and Castro, play Buchanan in the middle of the park.

Castro, is a good finisher let us be honest. I'm a sundowns supporter since from 1990. The injury hamper his progress @ sundowns.
