Controversial Yanga player Bernard Morrison arrested

Yanga SC and Ghana winger Bernard Morrison has been arrested in Tanzania after allegedly being caught possessing illegal drugs by police.

Morrison, 27, joined the Tanzanian giants after a poor stint in South Africa with Orlando Pirates in which he failed to earn a regular starting spot despite his obvious talent.

The Ghanaian was the lured to Yanga by Luc Eymael, who was fired this week after his racist remarks went viral. 

While Morrison quickly became a fan favourite in the Tanzanian top-flight, his time in Tanzania has been shrouded in controversy.

His showboating was the first issue that arose, but real issues between Morrison and Yanga come to light when he departed the stadium after being subsituted in a recent league encounter.

His latest offence, however, will surely get him in more trouble than before. 

African Football HQ understands that Morrison was found in possession of marijuana by Dar Es Salaam officials at a routine search at a roadblock and was taken into custody.

The Ghanaian obstructed police officers from inspecting his car before they found the illegal drug in his possession. 

It’s been confirmed that he was released on bail shortly after his arrest and is set to appear in court at a later date.
