Sierra Leone defender, David Simbo was pleased after helping his Northern Cyprus top tier side Baf Ülkü Yurdu thrashed Düzkaya 5-1 at the Güzelyurt Üner Berkalp Stadium on Saturday.

Simbo has expressed his delight as he headlines one of the county’s sports newspapers following the first week of the K-Pet Super League.

The 30-year-old centre-back, who wrapped up his move on the 7th of September was craving to get off to a fine start.

“I was pleased with a good 90-minute of football here. It was my first match, and I hope there will be a lot more,” he told FSL News.

“Looking forward to another, since I arrived I’ve trained a lot. I’ve tried to be more focus and comfortable.”

“Playing as a centre-back, you have to ready because of a lot of responsibility, but I felt comfortable.”

 Last season, the agile defender played for Turkish side Kiremithanespor.

 Simbo has had spells in Sweden with → Motala AIF (on loan), Trelleborg (on loan), Boden and Sandviken before joining Sudanese top-flight side Al-Hilal in 2014–2015 and later moved to Najran and Krumkachy Minsk in Belarus.

 He started his playing career with local club Mighty Blackpool, where he was impressive before moving abroad.
