Downs unveil the towering Affonso


Mamelodi Sundowns have officially unveiled new Uruguayan striker Mauricio Affonso.

Peruvian media reported Affonso's move to Sundowns at the end of last month following his spell with Alianza Lima, and the 27-year-old has now put pen to paper at Chloirkop.

Standing at 1.92m tall, the towering targetman's height advantage can be seen as he is pictured next to coach Pitso Mosimane.

It remains to be seen how well Affonso plays with the ball at his feet, but no doubt he will provide an aerial presence to The Brazilians' attack.

Affonso started his career in Uruguay with Racing Club de Montevideo, before stints in Saudi Arabia, Argentina and Peru.
