Castro: Sundowns clash like a final

Kaizer Chiefs striker Leonardo Castro is wary of the threat posed by his former teammates at Mamelodi Sundowns and is ready to put his close friendships aside.

Chiefs and Sundowns will restart their respective campaigns when they clash in an Absa Premiership clash at the FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon (15h30).

The two sides – Downs in fifth and Amakhosi in sixth position – are desperate to make up ground on front runners Bidvest Wits and Orlando Pirates.

Having spent two and a half years at Chloorkop, the Colombian forward knows the magnitude of this match but refuses to get caught up in the quality of his former teammates.

“We all know this is a big game for us, we have to take it as a final if we want to be on top of the table,” said Castro.

We’re preparing for our own game, we’re focused on us and we all know the quality of the players at Sundowns, so we need to be aware and try to do our best.”

Still holding ties with some of his former teammates, the 29-year-old has insisted there have been no discussions regarding the upcoming fixture and is relishing the battle.
