South Africa is similar to Brazil – Nascimento

Mamelodi Sundowns defender Ricardo Nascimento says he is loving life in South Africa.

The Brazilian defender, who joined Sundowns in July 2016, admits that he never thought of living in another country, but he is enjoying being in South Africa.

“South Africa has been awesome since I arrived and in many ways it’s similar to Brazil with the weather and the people,” Nascimento was quoted as saying by SundayWorld.

“I have been here for more than two years now and it’s great here, definitely my second home,” Nascimento added.

Nascimento regularly links up with other South American players in Leonardo Castro and Gustavo Paez.

“It is thanks to football that we know each other and find ourselves in the PSL. In SA people speak English and where we come from the main languages are Portuguese and Spanish. Although they are different we can understand each other,” Nascimento commented.
