Simba coach Sven Vandenbroeck hails title winning players

Simba SC coach Sven Vandenbroeck has heaped praise in his players for securing the Vodacom Tanzanian Premier league over the weekend.

Simba SC were crowned Champions for the 21st time after a goalless draw with Tanzania Prisons on Sunday.

Close rivals Azam failed to pick up maximum points as the held to a 1-1 draw by Biashara United on Saturday.

Vandenbroeck hailed the quality and the team spirit exhibited by the players.

“I think I have the best team in Tanzania because in my squad, all the players want to score goals and also defend and it has pushed us to the title,” Vandenbroeck tells Goal.

“All my players play as a unit, they push for one agenda and it has always become very easy to win matches, for example, if you look at my captain [John Bocco], he is a striker but sometimes you will find him defending when we are under attack.

“My players use brain football, and it is difficult to counter such players, they play as a unit and at the same time playing using the brain, and they always work together, if one player moves from his position, there is always another player to cover for him.”

The Belgian has also praised the fans for their massive support to the team.

“The fans have also played a huge role to give us the title, they have never given up, they have never disappointed us, they follow us whenever we go to support us and that is why we also push ourselves to do well for them,” Vandenbroeck said.
