Castro: We definitely want to put a star on the jersey

Kaizer Chiefs striker Leonardo Castro

Kaizer Chiefs striker Leonardo Castro is hoping to add to what is already a 'huge achievement' for the DStv Premiership club and claim the CAF Champions league trophy.

Amakhosi are up against Pitso Mosimane's Al Ahly in Casablanca in an eagerly awaited final on Saturday.

The current team have already broken past club records and could write themselves permanently in the history books with a victory over the nine-times continental cup winners.

Speaking ahead of the game, Castro, who won the 2016 Champions League with Mamelodi Sundowns but was ruled out with injury just before this season's second semi-final at the FNB Stadium, said his side faced a number of obstacles.

Castro said: "It is a huge achievement for the team‚ Kaizer Chiefs‚ and for each and everyone‚ the fans‚ the players and the technical staff because it is for the first time that we come this far in this competition.

"It was not really easy. We faced so many things during the campaign‚ like injuries‚ Covid-19‚ suspensions and the transfer ban.

"We have put in all our efforts to get where we are right now and we definitely want to put the star on the jersey's emblem."
