Young Africans Sporting Club have retained controversial Ghanaian playmaker – Bernard Morrison despite overhauling 14 players from the club following a trophy-less season.
The former Orlando Pirates midfielder [Morrison] has come under the media spotlight in recent weeks for the wrong reasons, from verbal tirade on Journalists to failing to comply with authorities who were ‘tipped off’ to search his vehicle for illegal narcotics.
The Ghanaian was subsequently released on bail and will still appear in court for his misdemeanor.
Bernard Morrison claims he signed only six-month deal with Yanga after leaving Orlando Pirates and is said to have signed a pre-contract with current Tanzanian champions – Simba SC ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.
It is alleged by close sources that his recent run-in with local authorities has been linked to ruining his reputation in a bid to put off potential suitors.
Young Africans SC has now already confirmed four new signings, which has been explained by the Director of their main sponsor, GSM Investment.
“All the players we have signed already are as per the request from the technical bench, even if Eymael left, we still had a team working under him which still exists and they are the ones involved in this transfer activities,” Said explained.
“We are ready to make tangible recruitment of players to create a squad capable to challenge for titles next term. As GSM, we will be fully involved in this exercise.”
