Simba SC defender Fraga Vieira happy after learning Kiswahili

The Brazilian defender reveals the reason why he now feels comfortable while playing for the Mainland champions

Simba SC defender Gerson Fraga Vieira said the understanding of the Kiswahili language has made him cooperate well with his teammates on the battlefield.

The Brazilian player joined the defending champions this season and has been one of the regular players for the Msimbazi Street-based side under the tutelage of departed coach Patrick Aussems.

He was reportedly brought in as a replacement of Ugandan defender Jjuuko Murshid, who could not continue trading with the reigning champions this season.
