Mamelodi Sundowns is the most ambitious team in South Africa currently. They have shown the desire to be the best teams over the years under Pitso Mosimane as a coach. The team has managed to get top quality players from all over the world. Players like Leonardo Castro from Columbia, Alje Schute from Nederland, and recently they roped in Nascimento from Brazil.
Ricardo is a Brazillian defender who joined Sundowns from Academica de Coimbra, a club that was relegated from the Portuguese Primera Liga. He has signed a 3 year contract with Sundowns which will run until end of June 2019.
Nascimento was signed as a replacement for Ramahlwe Mphahlele who left Sundowns for Chiefs before the start of the new season. The position was let by Alje Schute who returned to Nederland 2 seasons ago. The decision to sign Nascimento was done by the Sundowns technical team after they followed all suitable left footed players who have the same capabilities as Schute and Mphahlele.
Ricardo is determined to help Sundowns win trophies and also benefit himself to collect winning medals especially the league title and the CAF Champions League. He has all the necessary experience in the game of football as he has been a professional player since the age of 17.
