Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns have given striker Leonardo Castro a special leave of absence to return to Colombia, for the next seven days.

According to KickOff website, the 28-year-old striker is set to attend family commitments in his home town of Bogota.

The South American attacker has been dubbed a 'one season wonder', by sections of the media after starting only one game in the Premiership and scoring no goals during an injury-hit campaign.

"Leo has travelled back home for family related reasons and will be back in a week. The club has allowed him time to attend to these family matters," a representative close to Masandawana told the website.

Castro's only goal this season came in the Nedbank Cup fixture against minnows Mariveni United, compared to the 14 in is debut campaign where he provided the perfect foil for Khama Billiat and Keagan Dolly in the 'CBD' trio.
