Castro happy to extend his stay with Chiefs

Kaizer Chiefs and Leonardo Castro have reached an agreement to extend their relationship with a further two years, ending on 30 June 2022.

An ecstatic Castro responded saying: “Thank you so much. I am very happy with the Chairman Kaizer Motaung and Club. I am also grateful to continue to wear the Gold & Black. This is sensitive for me because I have not won a trophy yet with the team. And to leave without a gold medal would be a defeat for me.”

The Colombian has formed an integral part of Amakhosi setup since joining in January 2018 from the Tshwane-based Mamelodi Sundowns.

The striker has rattled the net 20 times in all competitions since his arrival at Naturena. Eight of the goals coming this season as Amakhosi launched a serious attempt to lift the Absa Premiership.

“I wish to win something. And I think with the squad we have at the moment; we are capable of doing well. My family is excited about this development. We are happy to remain in South Africa. Thank you once more  to the Chairman and the Club,” he concludes.
