Leonardo Castro will be remembered as one of the best strikers to play for Kaizer Chiefs in recent seasons.
He shone like a beacon when the moment arose and he netted crucial goals for the Chiefs machine.
He will not be part of the Amakhosi setup.
As such, he has taken the opportunity to fearlessly speak about the alcohol problems he saw during his time at Naturena.
“The problem [with alcohol] is disrespecting your teammates, disrespecting the technical staff and everyone at the club. For me, that shows disrespect, and if it is a young player and it happens once, then I can come to him and say, “Look, it is not the right time, and it is not right to come into training like this,” he said.
Witgout mentioning names, he added that the alcohol problem was bigger one for football players in South Africa.
He added that local footballers enjoy drinking and partying.
He went on to stress that he started experiencing alcohol problems from his team mates when he arrived in South Africa.
