Reader's Voice: Fan Warns Castro Of More Sleepless Nights


Kaizer Chiefs forward Leonardo Castro says he can barely sleep after losing a game, and is looking to avoid defeat in the Soweto Derby against Orlando Pirates. While some fans have praised and encouraged him to represent Chiefs well in the fixture, others think the worst is yet to come for the player.

Soccer Laduma reader Mjika Jakes seems unconvinced about Chiefs' chances of winning against Pirates in the absence of first-choice goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune:

"Without Itumeleng Khune, I have nothing to say but to cross fingers."

However, J.Khosi seems to have belief in Castro that he can make a difference in the derby. The Soccer Laduma reader says other Chiefs fans must notice the good the forward brings to the table and that he deserves more praise:

"Undervalued, hard-working player this is. I wish my Chiefs compatriots would ease up on the pressure they put on him and support him more instead. Castro is a hard-working striker who always gives his all and he gets the goals for us. He cannot be crucified for his pace, that's just who he is."

The Soweto Derby is famous for dividing South Africa's footballing community. While J.Khosi has faith in Castro, thinks the Amakhosi forward is about to have some sleepless nights:

"More sleepless nights for you, boet."
