Nascimento wants out at Sundowns


Mamelodi Sundowns defender Ricardo Nascimento is seeking a move away from the club due to “family reasons”.

As per FARPost sources, the lanky centre-back has sent a request to the Sundowns management to be released.

Sundowns ’pre-season preparations are underway with the team recently completing a training camp at the University of Pretoria (Tuks), but Nascimento has not been training with the club.

Provided both parties agree, the Tshwane giants will confirm the Brazilian’s departure soon.

The 34-year-old joined Sundowns back in 2016 from Atletico Monte Azul.

He has won four Premiership titles with Sundowns, the Caf Champions League, Caf Super Cup, and several cup competitions with over 130 appearances for the club.
