Tambwe; Simba SC deserved to clinch Premier League trophy

FORMER Simba SC and Yanga forward, Amissi Tambwe, has said Simba SC have every reason to lift this season's Vodacom Premier League top honour.

The Burundian goal getter was adamant there was no team in the Tanzania top flight soccer competition, which could have stopped Simba from going all the way to win the top honour.

Tambwe turned out for Simba SC in the 2013/14 season before crossing over to the outfit's rivals, Yanga, in the 2014/15 season and was later offloaded by the side two seasons back.

He stated Simba have competent players that worked hard, the squad also had gifted midfielders, who make the defense and forward line look way better.

"It is obvious there are plenty of dishonest practices in the soccer scene in the country but Simba deserved to win the silverware because their squad had good players,'' he disclosed.

''If you have the players akin to the ones Simba have, you will undoubtedly lift the top honour.''

''When we had such players like Simon Msuva, I and others at Yanga we formed a strong squad which was unbeatable.''

''We were clinching top honours given we were way better and the players were working hard.''

The forward was recruited by Simba SC in the 2013/14 season from Burundi foootball giants, Vital'O.

He went on to win the Mainland Premier League's top scorer prize at Simba SC, netting 19 goals.

In the following season, he took the second spot in the top goal scorers' list after netting 14 goals for Yanga.

He scored one goal for Simba SC in the season's first phase and he thereafter netted 13 for Yanga.

He had joined Yanga in the 2014/15 season's mini transfer period, after he had been offloaded by Simba SC.

He finished three goals behind the season's top scorer, Simom Msuva, who netted 17.

Tambwe laid his hands on the top flight top scorer prize at Yanga in the 2015/16 season when he banged in 21 goals.

He, nevertheless, could not replicate his goal scoring form in the 2016/17 season, netting 11 goals.

Msuva and Ruvu Shooting forward, Abdulrahman Mussa, ended as the season's top scorers, having scored 14 goals apiece.
