Baxter Set To Welcome Striker In The Coming Days

Having endures a tough start to the new season, Kaizer Chiefs will be having some sense of relief after knowing that one of their top strikers almost ready to make a return to their starting line up. 

Chiefs currently don't have strikers available as their top striker Samir Nurkovic and fellow compatriot Leonardo Castro are currently nursing injuries. However, with regards that, Chiefs have received a boost as Striker Leonardo Castro is soon to be available for selection. 

According to a source close to the situation, the striker has returned to Chiefs from Columbia and is is recovering quickly, something that had excited the club and their coach Stuart Baxyze who is under massive pressure at the moment. 

"Castro is back in the country and is looking fresh and sharp after his rehabilitation program. His return to playing is very near and the club is excited about that," revealed the source. 

This will undoubtedly be a major boost for Amakhosi who will be hanging on until the January transfer window, where they are expected to go for the signing of a striker as it is evident of the need for one at the moment. 

Castro joined Amakhosi in 2018 from Mamelodi Sundowns and has made 110 appearances for the club, scoring 29 goals and making nine assists in all competition. 

Baxter will face a tough test this coming weekend when he faces the man he replaced at Chiefs, that man being Gavin Hunt who is working at Chippa United.
