- The Ghanaian forward and Young Africans (Yanga SC) forward Bernard Morrison has sensationally claimed he was injected to ease his pain and play against Simba SC in their Mainland Premier League fixture.
The Ghanaian player has revealed how he took medicines and injections to be fit to play in the Kariokoo derby that Yanga eventually won 1-0 courtesy of his goal in the 76th minute.
“Yes it is true, it’s something that everyone in the Yanga team knows, they know that I got injured two days before the derby but because of the love I have for the club and the love I have for my profession, I had to sacrifice and help the team,” Morrison revealed.
He insisted that the team needed him and his passion to be on the field made him sacrifice so the supporters could be happy; “I did all these things just to be on the field even if it is five minutes, I had to play the five minutes for the club.”
“It was just for me to be ready and fit for the game, I was injected more than three times and all thanks to the physio of the club because he really sacrificed to make sure I was on the pitch to help the club,” Morrison admitted.
“I know it was dangerous to be taking injections and medication and not going through proper treatment procedures, it is a risk to do that but if you have passion and love for what you do and for the supporters you are working for, you will do whatever it takes to make them happy,” he continued.
He also revealed that their main target now is to finish second in the league and win the FA Cup to earn a ticket for the Caf Confederation Cup.
“We know now we cannot win the league (since Simba have been declared winners), so we don’t want to focus on winning the league but we want to focus on finishing second and also winning the domestic cup because it will give us a ticket to Caf competition,” he concluded.
