Simba: It was difficult to let trio go

SIMBA have admitted that the decision to let go three players; MeddieKagere, Chris Mugalu and Taddeo Lwanga was difficult to reach while thanking the trio for the good services rendered to the club.

Media and Communications Manager Ahmed Ally made the remarks immediately after an official statement of their release was produced saying both sides had reached mutual agreement before disbanding.

He added that the trio were still having valid contracts at the club before the decision was made saying it is where the difficult part of reaching common understanding came.

"They were not part of the squad in the upcoming season as such, we sat at the discussion table with them before terminating their contracts. We wish them well in their new professional lives wherever they choose to go," he said.

Meanwhile, Kagere has joined his colleague Pascal Wawa at Singida Big Stars and the two players were introduced on Thursday when the team played an international friendly match with Zanaco of Zambia and Singida Big Stars won 1-0.

In another development, Ally pointed out that Simba's new goalkeeping coach Mohamed Rachid of Morocco is destined to shape further the team's three shot-stoppers and make them very competitive.

Commenting on the pre-season they had in Egypt, Ally described it as a successful one and they will begin thorough preparations ahead of Simba Day as well as the next premier league campaign.

The Msimbazi Street Reds are set to unveil their 2022/23 brigade on Monday during the climax of Simba Day to be held at the 60,000 capacity Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in the city where a number of activities have been lined up.

Simba have introduced 'We Are Unstoppable' slogan to be used throughout the upcoming season saying they aim to claim back three domestic trophies they dropped last term plus reaching into the semifinals of CAF Champions League.

The club's Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Barbara Gonzalez made the introduction as she officially unveiled 'Simba Week' at Mbagala Zakhiem yesterday which was attended by hundreds of Simba members and fans.
Already, entry fees for the big event have been revealed whereby occupants of VIP A will pay 30,000/- while those to accommodate VIP B and C will dish out 20,000/-. Orange and ordinary seats will go for 10,000/- and 5,000/- apiece.

"We are coming back to reclaim our championship hence our slogan for Simba Week and the entire next season is 'We Are Unstoppable.' We want to win back Azam Sports Federation Cup (ASFC) and reach in the semis of Champions League," Gonzalez said.
