Watch: Castro's Award-Winning Chiefs Goal

Leonardo Castro Won Goal Of The Month For Kaizer Chiefs

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 19, 2018 05:29 PM

Kaizer Chiefs' Leonardo Castro has won his first accolade since joining the club as he scooped the Goal of the Month award for January.

Check out Castro's Chiefs debut in the gallery above

The Colombian became an instant hit with the Amakhosi faithful back in January as he came off the bench to score what proved to be the winning goal against Baroka in a 2-1 victory, smashing home from just inside the box with a fine left-footed strike.
 
 
Castro, 28, has managed to score two more goals since then – once in the Nedbank Cup and once in this month’s Soweto Derby – and will now be eager to try and aid Steve Komphela’s striking problems by grabbing a few more before the end of the season.
 
The forward scored 10 Absa Premiership goals in his debut season in the league while with Mamelodi Sundowns, but didn’t manage to score any in the 2016/17 campaign as he became more of a squad player than a starter.
 
Now, as he begins to find his feet at Naturena, an early accolade will no doubt help his confidence going forward, and Komphela will be hoping to reap the rewards as Chiefs seek to finish as high up the table as possible.
 
Despite having only played seven times for Chiefs, only three Glamour Boys have scored more league goals than him this season, and he still has a chance to challenge Ryan Moon – currently on four league goals – for the club’s Golden Boot.
 
Take a look at Castro’s brilliant strike in the video below:

As long as SPU( set pieces united) are trophyless, Komphela can also win Coach of the month award with draws.

I'm currently watching soccer zone,Simphiwe Mkhonza,former Chiefs defender,have recently said that Chiefs are a top team. I wonder where they are a top team,because on the log are on number five. Looool,these Chiefs fans,ay madoda. They think this team (Chiefs)is special. They don't know that we don't care about them.

I remember Nyawana's goal was voted the best by Chiefs' fans. Only the world to choose Masuluke's as the best to compete for Puskas award. Now Chiefs' fans used their numerical advantage in votes to rob Walter Musona's 35m free kick goal against Khune the Oros.
