Simba SC ready for match against JS Saoura, says Aussem

SIMBA SC head coach, Patrick Aussem, has said his charges are ready for the coming Group D match of the CAF Champions League against JS Saoura of Algeria that will be played at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on Saturday.


The coach issued the statement upon his team’s return from Zanzibar where the team is taking part in the ongoing Mapinduzi Cup competition.

He said the team is in good shape ahead of the coming continental competition’s match and hailed the Mapinduzi Cup saying it has helped to keep the team in good shape.

"The team is ready for the Saturday match against the North African giants, I am happy that all of the players are in good condition ahead of the game," he said.

Aussem asked all soccer loving Tanzanians to attend the match on Saturday in their big number to cheer their team.

The Belgian tactician noted his squad has prepared well for the encounter and only needs final touches before confronting the Algeria club.

Aussem asked the outfit supporters not to lose hope due to the absence of influential defender, Erasto Nyoni, who will miss the game due to injury he sustained in the match against KMKM of Zanzibar in the Mapinduzi Cup.

"Yes, Nyoni is a good player, we will miss his services, but we have other equally good players who will fit in his place and I am sure we will do well in the match," he said.

The coach said after Saturday game, the team will start preparations for an away game against Democratic Republic of Congo soccer giants AS Vita.

On Tuesday, Simba's information officer Haji Manara said the entrance fees for the Saturday match are reasonable for everyone.

He said there will be platinum fee in which fans who will buy the tickets will be afforded special car parking at Serena Hotel and ferried to the stadium on high class coaster.
