Mapinduzi Cup: Mtibwa Sugar thinks not just of the final, but the title


Mtibwa Sugar coach, Mecky Mexime
 Mtibwa Sugar of Morogoro leave for Zanzibar today to take part in the Mapinduzi Cup tournament, harbouring hopes of emerging the event’s champions.
 
The event is expected to kick off at the Abeid Amani Karume Stadium today.
Mtibwa Sugar, who qualified for the final of the last year’s version of the tournament, is expected to leave with all of the squad’s players with a view to performing well in the event, apart from shaping up for the Mainland Premier League.
 
Mtibwa coach, Mecky Mexime said they believe the tournament will be tough but he has prepared his team to ensure it performs well in tomorrow’s match against Azam FC.
 
"The match will be extremely tough because we met with Azam in last year’s event and we lost on penalties. We must win this time around,” he declared.
He said he has therefore prepared his side well, believing the team will perform well thanks to improvements he has seen in the team in some recent Mainland Premier League matches.
 
He said Mtibwa Sugar fans should expect to see the team come back with the event’s trophy, on account of having prepared his team well. The side will come up against outfits from neighbouring countries that have been invited to participate in the event, he pointed out. He said he believes the tournament will be extremely competitive as all the participating teams will not be simply making up numbers.
 
Mexime said he believes his team’s striking force will score goals in the tournament, grouping leading clubs from Tanzania Mainland and Zanzibar, plus invited teams from neighbouring countries.
 
The Mapinduzi Cup tourney starts today with defending champions, Simba SC expected to field Jamhuri of Pemba on Monday.
