Sundowns Bid Farewell To Departing Star

Some soccer players prefer traveling the world to play in different countries and end learning a whole range of languages and cultures and the same time will they are busy travelling all over the world to make a living from doing what they enjoy doing most, which is playing soccer. 

However, no matter how far one can travel, the road always leads home and that is surely the case with Mauricio Affonso who was in the books of Mamelodi Sundowns in South Africa as he has now returned to his homeland to continue his career there and call time on South Africa. 

Now, the crew has gathered that the lanky forward has resurfaced in his home country of Uruguay where he has penned a deal with topflight outfit, Club Atlético River Plate.The club confirmed the player’s capture on their official social media platforms on Thursday, revealing that the striker has already started training with his new teammates.

The giant Striker joined the Brazilians in 2019 from Alianza Lima and was tipped to be a hit, with then coach Pitso Mosimane saying that the striker allowed the team to play a different ball game in their air because of his height and big body. 

He however only went on to play 10 competitive games for the Brazilians, scoring six goals in the process, which is not entirely a bad tally because then that means that he would have scored more goals of he had played more matches for the Brazilians.Mosimane however talked very fondly of the The tall Striker when he was still with him at Chloorkop.

The 29 years old Striker was the first player to be confirmed to be leaving when the new season emerged closer as it was reported that he had not returned to South Africa, meaning that he had ended his time with Mamelodi Sundowns. That was not a surprise as he spent more of his time at Sundowns o the sidelines die to persistent injuries

We wish the striker all the best for his future endeavors and surely he would have made some great memories in South African Football and South Africa as a country.  Surely be will sometime in the future take trips to come back and see the beautiful Mzansi.
