Bernard Morrison is pleading with the Simba FC supporters to show him love after joining them from the rival club Yanga SC (Young Africans).
The Ghanaian attacker, Bernard Morrison over the weekend joined Tanzanian top-flight side Simba FC from rivals Young Africans, a move which generated a big controversy.
Morrison signed an initial two-year deal with the Tanzanian giants with an option for another year depending on his performances.
However, the signing did not go down well with his former club Yanga SC as they sued the player for breach of contract, at the same time accusing their arch-rivals of player tapping.
After a sitting on Wednesday, the Tanzanian Football Federation (TFF) has cleared the attacker of any wrongdoing.
The 27-year old has since expressed his delight by joining the 21-time-league champions.
“I am here with you [Simba supporters] because from today [Wednesday] … I am officially a Simba player,” the Ghanaian told the club’s website.
“I hope you guys will welcome me and love me the way you love your players because I am very happy to join your club and I am hoping to make you guys happy.”
The player has been accused of indiscipline especially by his former team, Timu ya Wananchi, but he has hinted on turning a new leaf and ensuring he respects everyone at his new home.
“So can you please accept me in your homes? I am going to respect this club and every supporter, respect the management and make you guys happy,” Morrison concluded.
