Simba lift lid on Morrison exit

Simba lift lid on Morrison exit

SIMBA have disclosed that family issues have compelled them to go separate ways with Ghanaian player Bernard Morrison whose contract at the club is slated to expire on June 31st.

This was confirmed on Friday by the club's Media and Communications Manager Ahmed Ally immediately after a statement was shared by the club's Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Barbara Gonzalez indicating that Morrison has been suspended for the rest of the season.

It said the decision was made with mutual agreement from both parties in order to let him sort out his personal issues and thanked him for his remarkable services throughout his stay at the club.

"We acknowledge and value Morrison's contributions for the two years he has served at our club and helping it to achieve remarkable successes like playing in the quarter-finals of CAF Champions League twice, clinching the Mainland Premier League title, Azam Sports Federation Cup (ASFC) silverware and Mapinduzi Cup.

"For these contributions and successes, the club would like to thank him for his immense support he rendered and we wish him all the best in his football career," reads part of the statement.

However, on his Instagram page, Morrison wrote: "It is with heavy heart to announce that I will be out for the remainder of the season due to family issues that are beyond my control and might affect my performance for the team if I represent the club.

"A lot needs to be said about it but I can only wish the club the best of luck in our remaining games. I hope and pray that I get this thing resolved as soon as possible so that I can join the team back."

Meanwhile, this could be a pathway for Morrison to re-join his former club Young Africans as speculations are hot that he is on the verge to make a U-turn and land at the Jangwani street giants.

Lately, Yanga have been tight-lipped to either confirm or deny the validity of the speculations even though key indicators were showing that it is just a matter of time before seeing him donning green and yellow jerseys next term.

The speculations were sparked recently when Yanga's Spokesperson Haji Manara on his Instagram page posted a photo of him tighting up shoelace on Morrison's boot in a past taken photograph.

He wrote: "There were some things which Morrison was just being accused but he is not necessarily like that. He is a gentleman and funny. We are sorry to him for the wrongs we did against him. Forgive us. All Tanzanians appreciate you."

Also, Yanga's Information Officer Hassan Bumbuli was recently quoted saying that there is nothing wrong for them to bring back Morrison into the team saying they are the ones who welcomed him into the country.

His last league match for the Msimbazi Street Reds before facing the suspension was a traditional derby encounter played recently at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium which elapsed in a barren draw and Morrison was on the starting lineup before he was substituted in the second half.
