AFTER signing Brazilian goalie Jefferson Luis, Simba said he is going to cement the team’s goalkeeping section as they approach busy 2023/24 season.
The 29-year old shot-stopper was introduced on Sunday via the club’s verified Instagram page and he is set to join his teammates who are in Turkey for the preseason drills.
“His signing means our team will be in safe hands next season because he has all the qualities to be our top goalkeeper and we are proud to finally get him,” said Simba’s Media and Communication Officer Ahmed Ally.
Jefferson is therefore meeting his fellow countryman coach Roberto Oliveira who is curious to stamp success at the helm of the Msimbazi street based side in the upcoming season.
Simba have been compelled to sign a new goalkeeper as the team’s first choice goalie Aishi Manula is still out of action for some time as he undergoes recovery process.
The Msimbazi Street Reds are pegged to compete in two major international contests which are the CAF Champions League and the newly established African Football League that consists of eight teams.
In another development, the team’s creative midfielder Clatous Chama has expressed his satisfaction following the return of his former teammate Luis Miquissone.
The Mozambican talented winger was paraded on Saturday in Dar es Salaam after terminating his contract with Egyptian giants Al Ahly.
“It is good information to me, I have been talking with him a lot about football and family issues…I am excited that he is back and he wanted to return for the benefit of his career.
“Sometimes, you go to a place but you become not 100 per cent happy, not enjoying football hence your career can be affected. I am happy he is back and I pray to God to give him energy to work hard and enjoy his football career,” Chama said.
Football fraternity are anxious to see whether the deadly partnership created by Chama and Miquissone at the club before going separate directions will be rekindled during the next campaign.
