- Kaizer Chiefs striker, Leonardo Castro, has hit back at former assistant coach, Rulani Mokwena
- Mokwena seemingly questioned Castro’s commitment to the cause and that he flies to Colombia very often
- The pair worked together at Mamelodi Sundowns
Rulani Mokwena, assistant coach at Orlando Pirates, directed some negative comments at Kaizer Chiefs striker, Leonardo Castro, a few months ago.
In October, Mokwena claimed Castro wouldn’t play in the Soweto Derby and that he dictated to the coach when he is fit or unfit to play.
Mokwena also implied that Castro was constantly flying to Colombia and back.
The claims stem from their time together at Mamelodi Sundowns.
Sowetan Live have now reported that Castro is bemused by his former assistant coach’s comments.
In response, Castro said, “He wants to talk‚ so let him talk.”
Castro concedes he was more inclined to travel to Colombia back then as his family was still based there and his wife gave birth twice during that time.
His family has since moved to Johannesburg so the situation is completely different now at the Amakhosi.
Castro added, “If people don’t know, I don’t need to talk about it.”
