Castro: Chiefs Pressure? Pressure Is In South America Or Europe
Leonardo Castro Isn't Worried About Pressure At Kaizer Chiefs
“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.
