Kaizer Chiefs striker Leonardo Castro has revealed whether he touched the ball before teammate Samir Nurkovic scored against Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday.
Nurkovic’s goal has caused a massive outbreak of criticism aimed at PSL/SAFA match officials and their alleged bias towards Chiefs.
The Serbian netted a first-half goal in their 2-0 victory over Sundowns at Loftus Versfeld, but there have been suggestions that the linesman failed to call what looked to have been an offside.

But if there's no touch Nurkovic is onside

Replays showed that the Castro had attempted to head the ball from Reeve Frosler’s free-kick before it ended up at the far-post for Nurkovic, but there have been split opinions over whether the Colombian in fact touched the ball or not.
