SIMBA SC defender Henock Inonga thanked the club fans for their heartfelt support in the excellent and challenging times they passed throughout the 2022/23 season.
The Congolese defender Inonga remarked during an interview with their club media that he had not met a club with such heartful fans as Simba throughout his career.
Inonga: “The fans have always tied up with the club. I thank Simba fans for such a heartful commitment to the club. They committed to the club at all times, at times of glory and whenever the club faced challenges.
“I am so proud to be part of the big club with incredible fans. I haven’t met a club with such supportive fans throughout my football journey.”
The club still needs to win a title, as in the past two seasons; they won none. The last time Simba SC won a title was in the 2020/21 season.
Before the current form, Simba had claimed the top-flight league title for four consecutive years – 2017/18, 2018/19, 2019/20 and 2020/21.
In 2020/21, Simba SC celebrated a treble of silverware, the same as their traditional rivals who celebrated a treble in the 2021/22 and 2022/23 seasons.
In the inter-club (CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup), Simba SC had set a record for stepping into the quarterfinals in the past three consecutive seasons.
The club ranks among the top ten after a superb performance in the continental competitions.
Aside from trading in the Mainland Premier League and Champions League, Simba SC will compete in the newly introduced CAF Super Cup.
As such, they have already announced to make major squad improvements to withstand the coming season with glory.
So far, the Msimbazi Street Reds have yet to announce their new signings other than offloading eight players who will not partake in the squad next season: Beno Kakolanya, Jonas Mkude, Erasto Nyoni, Nelson Okwa, Mohamed Ouattara, Victor Akpan, Augustine Okra and Gadiel Michael.
