Ghanaian midfielder, Bernard Morrison, is in trouble in Tanzania for punching an opponent during a brawl in a football match on Monday.
Morrison, who plays for Tanzanian giants, Simba SC, was caught on tape hitting Juma Nyoso of Ruvu Shooting FC in a Tanzanian Premier League following a late penalty decision.
The 27-year-old was introduced in the second half of the match as replacement for Francis Kahata.
A lone strike from Fully Zullu Maganga helped Ruvu Shooting FC to inflict a 1-0 home defeat on Simba SC to hand them their second defeat of the season.
The Ghanaian winger in a video posted on twitter, was seen coming from behind to punch Juma Nyoso after a late penalty was awarded to Simba SC after Luis Miquissone was fouled in the 18-yard box in the dying embers of the match.

Ruvu Shooting FC were protesting against the referees’ decision for handing a straight red card to Shaban Msala for the horrible tackle on Miquissone.
The incident adds to a long list of controversies the former Ashantigold midfield has been involved in since his move out of the country in 2015.
Morrison joined Simba SC in a controversial transfer switch from their arch-rivals Young Africans SC ahead of the 2020/21 season’s campaign.
In July of this year, he was arrested for alleged drug possession in Tanzania. In 2017, while on the books of South African side Orland Pirates, he was arrested for allegedly possessing a stolen car.
