Castro: We want to bring you happiness

Leonardo Castro says Kaizer Chiefs are working hard everyday to ensure they are in "the right mindset for the restart of the league."

Amakhosi have returned to training ahead of a proposed August 1st restart to the 2019/20 Premiership season.

While the 31-year-old defender admits it has been hard to adjust to the new training methods, Castro knows safety is key to completing the currently suspended season.

Speaking to the club's official website, the centre-back said: "It's good to be in our happy place again, because the pitch is our home.

"The first week was a bit hard for us, also, because we couldn't train in groups. We needed to keep distance from one another.

"Now, however, we are training together and that feels much better. We are training hard to become fit, regain our on-the-ball confidence, and to get into the right mindset for the restart of the league.”

Chiefs are currently top of the league standings, with Mamelodi Sundowns hot on their heels, just four points adrift and having played a game more.

Castro added: "It will be very important to win our first match, because that will keep us competitive. We need to have that winning mentality.

"We are working hard to be ready for the first game. We all know what you expect from us. We want to bring you happiness in these trying times.”

"Please be careful. Wear your mask, keep social distance, sanitize and please keep safe."
