Simba Suspend Player From All Activities

Simba Sports Club have confirmed the suspension of Bernard Morrison from all club activities, pending an internal disciplinary hearing.

The Tanzania Mainland Premier League side confirmed the suspension of the Morrison through a statement released on the club’s official social media platforms on Friday afternoon.

Morrison is alleged to have left the team camp without permission ahead of their premiership match against Tanzania Prisons

The 28-year-old striker, who has been the subject of three unsuccessful bids from former club Yanga Sports Club, was not in the match-day 13 at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium reports surfaced that the player had left the camp and made his own way home after being told he would start on the bench.

His walk-out was not confirmed by coach Pablo Franco, but source at the club says Simba have vowed to resolve any issues while refusing to weaken the club’s stance on the fee Yanga will have to pay for the striker.

“There won’t be any shedding of light. Any sort of thing that happens behind closed doors stays there and that has always been the case and that will remain the case,” a source at the club told Ducor Sports.

“As far as I am concerned Bernard Morrison is a Simba player, bottom line, that is it. Every player has got a price, but they have to have a valuation we think the player is at, not what they think the player is valued at.

Morrison joined Simba in August 2020 a two year deal from Yanga in a controversial move that saw his former club suing the player for breach of contract.

The Ghanaian international was previously with South Africa Premier Soccer League giants Orlando Pirates.

He has also played for Ghanaian Premier League outfit AshantiGold before switching to DR Congo side AS Vita Club in summer 2015.
