The transfer of Ghanaian playmaker – Bernard Morrison from Young Africans SC to rivals, Simba SC over the weekend has heightened the tension in Tanzanian football as the Yanga Boys are still claiming ownership of the former Orlando Pirates midfielder.

Bernard Morrison became the subject of sports discussions in the East African sub region following his move to Simba SC.

The Jangwani Street-based side [Yanga SC] issued a statement as soon as Simba unveiled Morrison, claiming that they still have a running contract with the Ghanaian attacking midfielder until 2022.

The club has referred the matter to the Tanzania Football Federation [TFF] for hearing today, but Morrison has urged his former employers to move on.

“It is part of the game, and I don’t take any personal offense about whatever that has been happening for a while now,” Morrison told Azam TV.

“Yanga is a big team and Simba is also a big club and moving from Yanga to Simba it is not really a big deal, though the [Yanga] supporters are disappointed and the management are disappointed, but it is part of football.

“It happens so I don’t think they have to see me as a bad person, in moving from Yanga to Simba because it is part of football and they have to accept it and move on and welcome me to Tanzanian football.”

The feud between Bernard Morrison and Yanga SC started immediately after their 1-4 lost against Simba in the FA Cup.
