Msimbazi giants have dismissed reports linking them to former Jangwani player after his release on Monday
Simba SC have denied reports that they are interested in signing winger Carlos Carlinhos who left rival Yanga SC on Monday.
The Angolan star was allowed to leave the Jangwani giants after asking for the same, and reports immediately circulated that their rivals Simba were interested in his services.
Simba’s information agent, Haji Manara, dismissed the reports as baseless explaining that the young player couldn’t play for them.
“Carlinhos playing in the Caf Champions League is impossible, it cannot happen,” said Manara, as quoted by Sokalabongo.
Goal Exclusively reported on Monday, the Angolan player, who signed for Angolan Premier League’s Interclube giants Jangwani, had already filed a request with the club’s management to end the deal he signed during its arrival on September 6, 2020.
Yanga later confirmed in a signed statement that they had released the player and wished him luck in his next move.
“Yanga’s management would like to confirm that they have reached a mutual agreement to terminate Carlos’ contract [Carlinhos] of Angola with immediate effect ”, we read in part of the club’s press release obtained by Goal.
“The decision was made after the player approached club management and asked to be released and after having had discussions between the two parties involved, they agreed to end the deal mutually.
“Yanga would like to thank Carlinhos for his dedication to the club while he was with us and also wish him well in his next move away from Yanga.”
Carlinhos got off to a good start in the Continental Premier League but later suffered from injuries that kept him from playing for some time.
He is leaving the club after having managed three assists under his belt and also scored the same number of goals, and has been involved in a total of six goals scored by Yanga in this campaign.
Carlinhos made history by being greeted by a large crowd upon arriving in Tanzania to sign the agreement and was transported in an open car accompanied by a convoy of vehicles that drove him from Julius Nyerere Airport at Yanga headquarters on Jangwani Street and then burst into tears saying that he had never been received like this before.
