The Bolivia international Erwin Saavedra has won his first ever title in the South African soil and it's something that has brought joy into his heart. Mamelodi Sundowns clinched their fifth consecutive DStv Premiership title and Saavedra had a beautiful experience. As he made a return to the Brazilians as they thrashed Royal AM by 3-2 this past weekend. He came in the 72nd minute on place of Thabiso Kutumeka as the technical team wanted to see what he can offer the side at the back end. It was a good come back as he last played in the CAF Champions League group stages second leg against Al-Merrikh.
That's when he got injured and didn't finish the match. Nevertheless, the Bolivar legend has showed gratitude toward his time thus far at Chloorkop and wants to contribute a bit more moving forward. As he feels that he has a lot to offer and he was unfortunate that he didn't get the right start that he was looking for when he arrived at Downs during the January transfer window. "Happy to play again. God knows when things happen. Let's start this challenge again," wrote @esaavedra26 on Twitter in Spanish but we had to translate it English.
According to reports, Downs paid around R12 million for his services at Bolivar. As they felt that he would bring something unique to the side and probably help them in the CAF Champions League too. He only managed to make four appearances in all competitions for Downs.
"So far you have disappointed, do better next season or they will send you back to your wig selling business," said @sibonelosithole on Twitter.
"Expect plenty of this.. ask Gaston ever since he came to RSA he has never witness another team lifting PSL tittle except Downs," said @sgubhu_mgodi on Twitter.
