England-born Zimbabwe Warriors defender Tendayi Darikwa says he is keen to learn to speak Shona.

“It’s been good trying to fit with the rest of the team and I think I am managing very well. I don’t speak Shona so it’s been a bit difficult but the players speak English, the technical team speaks English and hopefully when I come back next month I will be speaking a bit of Shona,” the 26-year-old fullback said in an interview with The Sports Hub.

 “It’s been an amazing experience for me you know. Those were two tough games against a very good team, but we went to DRC and we believed in ourselves. I think we sent a message to Africa taking four points off a big team like DRC,” Darikwa said.
Darikwa plays for Nottingham Forest in the UK.
