I don’t need you, Masoud Juma tells ‘haters’

Kariobangi Sharks striker Masoud Juma has hit out at his “haters” saying he he doesn’t need them to get what he wants.

The national team player made the comments on Facebook just days after failing to secure a move to Sweden.

The 21-year-old, who has recently been in the news, attended trials at AIK Football and Jönköpings Södra IF but failed to make the cut.

In his Facebook post, Juma cited the case of Harambee Stars striker Michael Olunga, saying the China-based striker once failed trials in South Africa but is currently the among the best strikers in the world.

This even as Jönköpings Södra IF coach Jimmy Thelin praised Juma on the club’s official website despite not giving him a contract.

“It can be judged relatively quickly with the way the player takes to new things, how he learns and his attitude to training. I think he (Juma) has a great character and adapts very quickly to our way of looking at football. He has made a good impression on us,” the coach told the club’s official website.

Last month, Juma became a subject of debate after being handed a starting role ahead of more established strikers during Harambee Stars’ 2-1 loss against Sierra Leone in a 2019 Africa Nations Cup qualification match played in Freetown.
