Implications Of Chiefs' Castro Signing For Pirates

Leonardo Castro Chiefs Signing implications for Orlando Pirates

The signing of Leonardo Castro by Orlando Pirates' arch-rivals, Kaizer Chiefs, may have a significant bearing on the Parktown-based club.
 
As reported by the Siya Crew Orlando Pirates are on the market for a prolific goalscorer and Leonardo Castro was among the potential signings that the Soweto Giants were hoping to land in the January transfer period. However, with Castro having signed for the Amakhosi, Pirates would have to look to another striker to solve their goalscoring problems. 
 
 
Castro was the biggest name linked with the Soweto Giants ahead of the transfer period out of the potential other potential signings the club could make. The likes of Polokwane City striker Thobani Mncwango, Mamelodi Sundowns Cuthbert Malajila and Chippa United’s Moeketsi Sekola have all been thrown in the mix. 
 
The only other significant potential name Pirates could hope to secure is that of SuperSport United’s talisman Jeremy Brockie. The Crew had reported previously that Pirates had joined the race to sign the Matsatsantsa a Pitori man and were gunning for the New Zealand-born striker amidst heavy interest from city rivals Mamelodi Sundowns. 
 
 
Pirates have struggled to replace Tendai Ndoro since the Zimbabwean left to join Al-Faisaly in Saudi Arabia. Currently, the Soweto giants have scored 11 goals in 15 matches but have also conceded 11 goals.  
 
The Crew has also been informed that the Buccaneers were close to landing their goalscorer and would reveal the player during the transfer period. Furthermore, the club has come out to state that they would only reveal their signed target, after the transfer window period.

Our problems of not having enough goalscorers started early last season when we only relied on Ndoro for goals but our management as usual didn't act until Ndoro lost his foam, even now they are not showing any signs of being serioisly recruiting a proven prolific striker who can permanently solve our goal scoring problems; Kaizer Chiefs is currently better than us in terms converting their opportunities but they managed to sign the striker in front of our nose while we the product more than them
