Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs forward Leonardo Castro
is relishing the new strike partnership with Khama Billiat and Samir
Nurkovic, saying it's easy to play alongside them.
Amakhosi coach Ernst Middendorp tried out the new combination of
attackers two weeks ago, in the Telkom Knockout win over Cape Town City,
and has since stuck with it.
Chiefs have scored five goals in three games with the new trio
causing the damage up front and Castro is eager to keep developing their
partnership on the field.
"The instruction is clear for us to move into the spaces. Obviously,
for us as strikers, we need to be calm when we have the ball at our feet
and take the right decisions," explained Castro.
"It's the first time for me to play with Samir, and there's a long
way to go to get to know each other up front, so we're working on the
right things in training.
"With Khama, I know him for long; we know each other, and we can
close our eyes and play together, so it's easy to be playing with these
two guys because they know to play."
