Former Simba SC, Yanga stars shown exit door at Polisi Tanzania

VODACOM Premier League side, Polisi Tanzania FC, has announced that it has parted ways with a total of 13 players including former Simba SC and Yanga stars, Marcel Kaheza, Pius Buswita and Pato Ngonyani.

Polisi Tanzania FC's midfielder, Pato Ngonyani, is one of the players released by the club after this season's completion.

The earmarked players have been deemed surplus to future requirements following the expiration of their contracts with the club.

All players who were on loan at the club will not be given a chance to make their stay permanent. Instead they will be returned to their parent clubs.

The affected players are Marcel Kaheza, Joseph Kimwaga, George Mpole, Emmanuel Manyanda, Mohamed Yusuph, Erick Msagati, and Mohamed Kassim.

Hassan Nassoro, Mohamed Bakari, Pato Ngonyani, Pius Buswita, Ramadhan Kapele and Jimmy Shoji, are also in the list of players released by the side.

On Tuesday morning, a statement issued by the club read: "Polisi Tanzania would sincerely like to thank all the above mentioned players for their commitment and contribution while wearing club colours and wish them the best of luck in the future.''

"We also want it to be noted that none of the players who we are still in contract negotiations will leave except for all those have been released from our team.''

''The club management saw the service they gave us was enough and after their contracts expired there is no reason to extend their contracts. We released them to go and look for new challenges."

"In addition, the club has returned all the players who were with us on loan agreement to their respective  parent clubs after the season ended."

"Ahead of  the new season we will delve into the transfer market to rebuild our squad by adding not more than eight new faces in addition to the 19 players who we retained from last season,'' concludes the statement.

Monday marked the official opening of the transfer window ahead of the 2021/22 season as clubs look to formally register new signings.

Clubs will have five weeks to complete their signings, with the window closing at midnight on August 31.
