Logarusic skips training
24 March 2015, 11:23
Nairobi - AFC Leopards have confirmed new head coach Zdravko Logarusic did not report for training on Monday, with an unpaid salary and allowances thought to be behind his absence.
The tactician recently took over the reins at Ingwe and led the side to a 1-0 victory over Nairobi City Stars in the second game of the 2015 Kenyan Premier League campaign on Saturday.
However, the financial troubles that plagued the Nairobi giants last season appear to again be derailing the team, who reported for training this week only to be left high and dry by the coach.

Ingwe official Asava Kadima told Goal: "The coach had indicated that he will not be available today (Monday). He had informed management so we are aware. The training session was to be conducted by (assistant coach Yusuf) Chippo so I don't know why players are sitted."
Meanwhile, Leopards organising secretary Timothy Lilumbi has moved to clarify reports that main sponsor Mumias Sugar Company have withdrawn, saying: "I am disappointed with what is happening. Mumias is contemplating giving us a notice before they cease to be our sponsors. They have not pulled out. It is true they are financially struggling. However, they just cannot pull out without proper notice."
