Nandwa overruled, Leopards confirm Charity Cup participation

22 January 2014, 13:03

Nairobi - AFC Leopards have confirmed that they will take part in the Kenya Power Charity Cup, overruling head coach James Nandwa who had earlier said the club would not.

Leopards have reiterated that they compete for all titles on offer this season. Club chairman Allan Kasavuli said that the team has good depth to challenge for all titles including the Kenya Power Charity Cup.

 “We will compete in all tournaments, Organising Secretary Timothy Lilumbi said.

" There is the understanding that the technical staff have to look at the shape of the squad and other matters but we are a big club and have a responsibility to Kenyan football.

" Even if it means that we field a very weakened side, then we will do so but we will take part, he added.

Other competitions lined up for the GOTV champions this year include the DSTV CUP against KPL champions and arch-rivals Gor Mahia FC, the top eight knockout tournament, the GOTV Shield, the Premier League and the CAF Confederation Championship.

The first team is currently training in Mumias, in preparation for the season’s assignments to commence in February 2014.

Head coach James Nandwa had said the club would not take part in the Charity Cup due to a number of injuries to the squad. Key players such as Allan Wanga, Jacob Keli, Paul Were, Joseph Imbenzi and Martin Musalia and Anthony Kimani are all carrying injuries.
