It’s tall order for Simba coach

THE newly-recruited Simba Head Coach Didier Gomes Da Rosa has vowed to implement the club’s main targets including continuously winning the Premier League title.

The Frenchman trainer was officially paraded at Simba in Dar es Salaam on Sunday as the successor of Sven Vandenbroeck who on mutual consent parted ways with the club shortly after driving them into the group stages of CAF Champions League.

In his brief remarks, he reiterated that he is aware that Simba is an ambitious club which needs to do well in the Champions League and the Mainland Premier League competitions as such; he called on the club to be solid to successfully fulfill their targets.

“The league is very important and it is the main target of the club because we want to play in the Champions League every year hence, we need to prepare very well for the upcoming three league matches in hand,” Didier said.

About his football philosophy, he said he goes for ball possession game just like the one implored by Simba and that he usually demands his players to put on good fight in the game by upholding the winning spirit.

“At the start of the group stage, I will demand much competency from the players and I am sure that with the quality players in the squad, I believe they will be solid enough to go far in the competition,” he said.

Moreover, Da Rosa pointed out that the presence of big number of Simba passionate fans attracted him to join the club and he is sure that they will achieve many great things this season.

Commenting about Simba’s group A in the CAF CL, the coach insisted that each team in the group has got equal chances to do well but he labelled his side as an ‘experiment’ now while insisting that he is convinced to take Simba as far as the quarterfinals of the elite competition.

“Simba is a very good team and from what I saw during their game against FC Platinum, Simba were much better and I can visualise good things for this club in the CAF CL." 

“I love my players but I am very demanding. When you are an experienced coach, you know the best ways to deal with your players but, above all, discipline is very important to reach high level of success,” he said.
