Simba SC keeper Benno David Kakolanya says that he's not pressured playing second fiddle to Aisha Manula as they both are working for the success of the team.
Kakolanya made the comment during a question and answer session with club fans via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram on Tuesday afternoon.
"When Aishi Manula is named it's like I have also been named. Same as Ally Salim. It's all for the good fo the team, it's not an individualistic achievement," he said.
The shot-stopper is currently in his first season at Wasimbazi after crossing over from arch-rivals Yanga in July 2019. He was recruited from Yanga alongside Gardiel Michael Mbaga and Ibrahim Ajibu Migomba. The trio has struggled to find playing time at the league leaders.
