Logarusic disillusioned as derby day arrives

10 April 2015, 16:14

Nairobi - AFC Leopards coach Zdravko Logarusic has revealed that he is somewhat disillusioned with the current circumstances at the club.

Leopards have become notorious for failing to pay their players, for protracted periods, but now there is the added complication of the team being divided by the rift which exists between the Kenya Premier League and the Football Kenya Federation.

"I don't know my team," Logarusic told Simba Super Soccer. "Things I am facing at Leopards are new to me in my 20 year coaching experience. Most things I have never seen them in my life but this is Africa. 

"I have to go below European expectations. I am worried because I don't know my team. When I know it, I don't care who is on the other side whether its Harambee Stars or Tanzania national team, I can tell them to come but the problem now is I am not familiar with my team since we spend less time in training with them due to off the pitch difficulties."

Leopards are a rather peculiar club, in that they have only lost one match in five outings this season, despite the off-the-field issues which have transpired over the past 12-18 months. 

The next assignment for the club will be a difficult fixture against the unbeaten Gor Mahia and Logarusic remains undeterred, nevertheless.

He added: "Because my players are confident, for without it they can't be on the pitch, in my presence and that game (versus Gor Mahia) will decide who is me and who is not me. AFC Leopards is strong because I am on the bench.
