Akwana takes up Ingwe reins

14 August 2015, 17:53

Nairobi - Ezekiel Akwana has taken over as caretaker coach of AFC Leopards following the departures of Zdravko Logarusic and Yusuf Chippo.

Financial difficulties at the Nairobi giants have led to severe struggles, both on and off the field, highlighted by the departures of head coach Logarusic and his assistant Chippo.

Former Leopards defender Akwana has since stepped in to fill the void and will now be tasked with convincing the players to lift their training boycott and prepare for Saturday's GoTV Shield clash against Ligi Ndogo.

"Coach Chippo leaving is a massive blow to the club because this is a very experienced man we are losing and as a club we feel it so much," he told SuperSport.

"I just wish things would have been better for the team at this point in time but we are Leopards and we will rise.

"Personally, I have not yet thought of leaving the club; I will stay on as long as the management feels I can be of use to the team and if the players are ready to work with me.

"I have this club at heart and I will not just leave because there are problems here."
