Simba Club announced the appointment of coach Abdelhak Ben Sheikha, to succeed Brazilian Roberto Olvera Gonsalves, who was dismissed on November 7th.
The heavy defeat that Simba suffered against its traditional rival Young Africans (5-1) in the eighth round of the Tanzanian league championship shocked the Brazilian and hastened his departure.
The challenges that await Bin Sheikha
The architect of USM’s victory in the African Confederation Cup last season held a press conference twenty-four hours after his arrival in the Tanzanian capital, Dar es Salaam.
Bin Sheikha expressed his enthusiasm to start his new experience in the Tanzanian league, stressing that he is optimistic about his ability to lead the team on the path to success and achieving titles.
The former technical director of the Greens called on Simba club supporters to rally around the team in order to accompany him in the new project. He was also keen to clarify an important point, which is to revive competition between the elements of the current squad to raise the level of the players.
A lot is expected from the Algerian coach in the coming period, especially after the series of negative results that the team experienced.
Simba occupies third place in the local league with 19 points after nine rounds since its start, as it is five points behind and one game less than leaders Young Africans.
It also began its campaign in the group stage of the African Champions League, with a draw at home (1-1) against ASEC Mimosas of Ivory Coast.
Simba will compete with Moroccan clubs Wydad Athletic Club, Botswana’s Galaxy and ASEC Mimosas for the two places qualifying for the quarter-finals of Group Two.
Simba and its rival, Young Africans, constitute the double polarity in Tanzanian football, as the two teams won most of the local titles.
Coach Bin Sheikha’s team has 22 league championship titles in its coffers (the second most won in the competition), in addition to six local cup titles.
