Pitso Mosimane: Leonardo Castro Was Forever Not Around
Mamelodi Sundowns head coach, Pitso Mosimane, revealed that Leonardo Castro had his own issues and things did not work out for him during the final stages of his stay at the club.
Castro completed his move to Kaizer Chiefs on December, 16, after being heavily linked with an exit from the Chloorkop-based club despite his previous contributions to the team’s success.
Talking to the media, Head Coach Mosimane was videoed saying that Castro was dealing with his own personal issues, but commended the footballer by revealing that the club will only look to keep the good memories of the Colombian.
“He had his own issues, personal issues that we don’t want to talk about and we supported him on that,” Mosimane revealed.
“He was forever not around, all the time in Colombia. You’ve got to understand that, you’ve got to support that.
"You know, but what a good football player, never missed training, never missed training, he gave his best. It just did not work out you know, its one of those that you ask yourself now, the guy was scoring 13 goals, he scored 1, what happened?"
"You know, injuries also, a lot of issues you know, we only keep good memories of Leo, Leo is a good boy," he added.
