AFC Leopards coach evicted from his home

Nairobi - AFC Leopards coach Zdravko Logarusic has been kicked out of his Nairobi apartment for unpaid arrears.
The Croatian coach has been living in an apartment under Leopards care in the six months he has been coaching in the country.
However, according to the owners of the building, the agreement was that Leopards pay quarterly but they have failed to pay for the last two quarters and thus they have been left with no option but to kick out the former Gor Mahia and Simba SC coach.
" We have been put in a bad position. We have to ensure that we get our money and after endless calls to AFC Leopards and visits to their offices, they have just refused to pay," a caretaker with the apartments that did not want to be named told News24.
The caretaker to the apartment showed News24 the message sent to Logarusic to inform him of the decision.
" AFC (Leopards) club have not paid your rent and looks like they
will not pay. We have to market the apartment unfortunately. We shall
keep your clothes until you get back," the message said.
Logarusic is currently on holiday in Croatia.
When reached for comment, Leopards Organizing Secretary Timothy Lilumbi admitted that there had been issues on the payment front but that the club would do its best to complete the arrears.
" As you know, times are tough right now for the club, but efforts are being made to clear the bill as well as others that exist," he stated.
Leopards are set to hold a fundraiser to offset the various arrears they owe players, staff and creditors.
Two weeks ago, forward Karim Nduggwa was also ordered to vacate his house unless he came up with rent, as did former captain Martin Imbalambala who has in the aftermath moved to second tier side Nakumatt FC.
