Chiefs Star’s First Goal For Club Receives Award
Leonardo Castro Has Picked Up The Goal Of The Month Award For January
Leonardo Castro’s debut goal for Kaizer Chiefs has received the Absa Premiership Goal of the Month award for January.
The player completed his move from Mamelodi Sundowns to Amakhosi during the January transfer window this year, where he went on to score two goals in seven Absa Premiership encounters.
The Colombian’s debut goal for Chiefs was confirmed as the Absa Premiership Goal of the Month, in a league clash against Baroka, where Amakhosi secured a 2-1 win.
“Leonardo Castro has won the Absa Premiership Goal of the Month award for January for his strike in Kaizer Chiefs’ 2-1 win over Baroka FC,” the PSL said in a press release.
“Castro’s well-taken half volley on the edge of the 18-yard area on debut for his new club, helped Chiefs clinch the come-from-behind victory against their hoodoo opponents at the new Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday, 21 January.
“Castro’s goal, which was voted for by football fans, emerged with the most votes in a shortlist that also included some brilliant goals during the month of January such as Polokwane City’s Walter Musona’s stunning free-kick against Chiefs, Daylon Claasen’s brilliant when Bidvest Wits thumped SuperSport United and Mamelodi Sundowns’ Sibusiso Vilakazi’s classy curler in their home win over Platinum Stars,” the league added.
