Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns forward Leonardo Castro admits that the ambition the Chloorkop club shows is the reason he left Bolivia.

According to Soccer Laduma, the striker parted ways with Bolivian Primera Division side Club Deportivo Universitario and joined Sundowns.

The 26-year-old says that he Universitario is a major club in Bolivia but the vision that Sundowns have for themselves going forward is what attracted him to penning a deal

“I was playing for a big club in Bolivia and what attracted me to Sundowns is their ambition and vision to win things,” Castro said.

“I knew if I became part of such a team we would be able to win trophies, so I am happy we have already done that within six months of me joining.

“I am happy to be at Sundowns and I know there are many expectations which I want to fulfil with the team.”
