Simba’s 5-0 humiliation by Egyptian giants Al Ahly on Friday night left one ardent fan of the Tanzanian champions utterly distraught and inconsolable .

A short video clip posted on social media show the fan in question wailing uncontrollably following the embarrassing defeat in a Caf Africa Champions League match played at the Borg El Arab stadium in Cairo.

The clip also captures the voices of other people in the clip – assumed to be supporters of Simba’s arch-rivals Yanga – trying without any success to console the man.


“Please don’t cry, it was just a football match… you should by now be used to witnessing such defeats…” a voice is heard telling the wailing fan.

This is Simba’s second straight 5-0 defeat in the competition, having suffered a similarly heavy loss away to Congolese outfit AS Vita last month.

In between, the Tanzanian champions were bundled out of the SportPesa Super Cup after suffering a  2-1 loss in the semis on home turf to Bandari.

This poor run of results has piled pressure on coach Patrick Aussems.
