Kaizer Chiefs attacker Leonardo Castro believes he did not touch the ball for Samir Nurkovic’s much-contested opening goal against Mamelodi Sundowns in Kaizer Chiefs’ 2-0 Absa Premiership win at Loftus Versfeld on Sunday.
The South American forward got up to challenge Mosa Lebusa to a cross from Reeve Frosler in the seventh minute but appeared to miss his header‚ with Samir Nurkovic following up and burying the opener at the far post.
“I didn’t touch the ball‚” he said‚ “If I had touched the ball‚ it’s simple – the ball would have gone straight to the goal.
“And that would mean it was my goal. So I didn’t touch it. Nurkovic was onside. So it’s a clear goal.”
