Ghanaian player, Bernard Morrison, has courted controversy after his team, Simba SC’s 1-0 win over rivals Young Africans SC in the final of the Azam Sports Federation Cup.
The polarizing Morrison is seen in a video celebrating his side's victory with his shorts on his head while jogging on the pitch.
While Simba SC supporters were cheering him, rival fans from Young Africans were jeering him.
It is reported that the animosity between Morrison and Young Africans started after the Ghanaian decided to move from the club to Simba during free agency.
Yanga attempted to block the move, claiming he was still their player but the Tanzanian Football Federation ruled in favour of Morrison, stating that he had been a free agent prior to the move,.,.., reports CitiSports.
Morrison has been on the receiving end of heckles by Young African supporters, a prime example is where journalist Saddick Adams reports that the fans claimed he had hernia.
This could explain why Morrison decided to drop his shorts to show his groins and dance in front of the rival fans after the Federation Cup match.
Eventually, the 28-year-old was convinced to put his shorts back on after members of both side’s technical team confronted him.
Watch the video below:
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Ghana defender Jonathan Mensah scored the only goal of the game to help his Columbus Crew side to a 1-0 win over Atlanta United. Mensah scored in the 65th minute of the game to seal all three points for his side.
Midfielder Marlon Hairston flicked on a near-post corner by Zelarayan and Mensah was the first to get to the ball at the back post, heading in off Anton Walkes for his first goal of the season.
This was the Ghanaian’s first goal for Crew since 27 July 2018 when he scored the opener in the 3-2 away win against New York Red Bull.
