Castro: Chiefs Pressure? Pressure Is In South America Or Europe

Leonardo Castro Isn't Worried About Pressure At Kaizer Chiefs

By Soccer Laduma - Feb 23, 2018 11:13 AM

“Pressure is playing in South America or in Europe. That’s tough and you need to be mentally strong.”

That’s according to Kaizer Chiefs’ big-name striker, Leonardo Castro, who says that football isn’t about pressure for him, it’s about doing what he loves.

The Colombian has one goal to his name since joining the Glamour Boys from Mamelodi Sundowns earlier this year, and he admits that he’s enjoying himself so far.

He told the club’s official website, “Of course, there is pressure here as well, but not at that level. I love to play soccer – that’s not pressure, it’s what I do for fun.”

Chiefs are just five points behind his former club with nine games to go, and while the 28-year-old knows that things can change quickly, his focus is on grabbing three points against Bloemfontein Celtic this weekend.

He said, “Anything can happen… I understand the hunger of our supporters for trophies. However, it’s too early to talk about the championship title. We take it one game at a time and every game is important.

“We are looking for the win on Saturday, we want to make the Amakhosi family proud.”

The Glamour Boys host Siwelele on Saturday evening at the FNB Stadium.

I agree 100% with Castro, the pressure in PSL is too low compared to some overseas leagues, one other thing is that players are overpriced for no apparent reason.no player in the psl is worth R4m.

Football players are not loyal mate when joining a new team they will say all the good things about their new employers which is something that all players do ,if you ask Leo to say the things he said about MS when joining them he won't repeat them now.

These are Castro's words after joining Downs. Now let's compare....................... ...... Mamelodi Sundowns striker, Leonardo Castro, has indicated that he joined the Chloorkop-based side to win silverware. Read: Katsande Explains Why He Dribbles More Speaking to Soccer Laduma in an exclusive interview, the Colombian revealed that he left his Championship-winning Bolivian club to join Masandawana. “I was playing for a big club in Bolivia and what attracted me to Sundowns is their ambition and vision to win things. I joined them to win things. It’s good to have already won one cup,” Castro said. Castro also revealed that he had received offers from other teams in South America, but him seeking a new challenge ultimately brought him to Chloorkop. “I also had a chance to play in the South American Champions League with teams from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Venezuela and other countries, but I wanted a new challenge, so when the chance came I grabbed it with both hands. I wanted a new challenge away from my comfort zone,” he said to Soccer Laduma.

Read first before you make stupid comments, Leo is not talking about a pressure in a club but country and if you surrounded by matured or good players it doesn't matter which team you playing for you won't feel any pressure,Leo is at the right team .
