The club posted, “Feliz cumpleaños Edson! A huge shout out to @edsoncastillo80 on your special today! We wish you many more.” However, against the post, fans were quick to implicate his age into the mix. How old is Edson Castillo?

Surprisingly, he is 30 years old. Edson Castillo was born on 18 May 1996 in Puerto Ordaz, Venezuela. Edson Castillo’s age puzzled many, and his transfer move and recent form were quickly implicated in the mix.

A concerned Kaizer Chiefs fan posted, “Happy birthday, Mude Mude. Please, give him a chance. Kwi first lineup. I want to see something.” Instagram user @tshegofatso_ralematha commented, “Quality Quality player, happy birthday Stilo.”

He joined Kaizer Chiefs from Monagas in 2023 after scoring three goals in 11 appearances. However, his stint with Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs hasn’t been as colourful as many thought it would be. Will Kaizer Chiefs keep him for another season?
