Agent: Leonardo Castro Is A Kaizer Chiefs Player
Leonardo Castro is expected to report to Kaizer Chiefs next week as predicted, with the player’s agent confirming that he is a Glamour Boy.
Chiefs announced in December, after months of speculation, that the Colombian would be donning the Amakhosi jersey after reaching an agreement with Mamelodi Sundowns.
However, reports surfaced in France last month indicating that Castro was linked with a move to Ligue 1 side, Amiens SC.
“Amiens is going to sign two offensive players to replace the probable departure of Lacina Traore. One of them could be Colombian striker Leonardo Castro (28), who plays in South Africa (Mamelodi Sundowns),” (translated) it was stated in the French publication, L’Equipe.
The Siya crew contacted Chiefs for comment on the matter, however, received no reply at the time.
Castro’s representative, Joao Betancourt, confirmed, “Leo (Castro) is Kaizer Chiefs player. He will be at the club next week.” The agent informed the crew that the link to France was only speculation.
