Leopards boss quickly shifts focus to Top 8 final
12 June 2014, 12:03
Nairobi - AFC Leopards coach Henrik Pieter De Jongh says that focus is already on the KPL Top 8 final versus Tusker FC.
Leopards as expected saw off KCB 3-0 (4-1 aggregate) at the Nyayo Stadium Wednesday to book their place in the final, where they take on Tusker FC Sunday in Meru.
De Jongh knows that they will face a wholly different test to the KCB one when they take on the brewers but insists that his side will be ready.
" It is good to win big but in this case we have just shifted focus to the final which is the important game, he said.
" We want to win the final. If we do not win it no one will remember we beat KCB by three goals. We all just want to win the final. That is the important part for us.
" The players are motivated and so preparation will be far easier. We are focused and looking forward to the weekend, he added.
Leopards will hope to avoid a second cup defeat in a matter of days after they lost the final of the CECAFA Nile Basin tournament last week.
