Leopards coach happy with Gor scalp

09 June 2014, 14:23

Nairobi - AFC Leopards coach Hendrik Pieter de Jongh has lauded his side's "fighting spirit" after they trounced Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia 3-1 on Sunday.

Ingwe had endured a frustrating start to the new season after winning just three of their opening 12 league matches, with De Jongh recently brought in to replace James Nandwa and he has had a telling impact on the team.

That was evident this past weekend as Leopards put their bitter rivals to the sword, and De Jongh was left overjoyed by his side's determined display.

"The fighting spirit was amazing and we deserved this win. The fans are delighted and they deserve it for coming out in a big way to support the team," the coach told Goal.

De Jongh looked to have revived his side's fortunes during the recent CECAFA Nile Basin tournament, where they finished as runners-up, and the tactician believes they are now ready to press on in the domestic scene.

"We did very well in Sudan during Nile Basin tournament and it gave us motivation to do well in this match. This is a warning to other teams to expect even more from us," he said.

"I think It was a good performance from the players, the fighting spirit was great, the positioning was perfect and everybody contributed in his role. We passed the ball well and it was a great game of football.

"It was a good continuation from the way we played in Nile Basin tournament in Sudan and we are working to get the best out of the team. The team has improved very much and I am looking forward for us keeping on with the same kind of performance. AFC Leopards is a big club and we ought to get good results."
