Nairobi - AFC Leopards interim coach James Nandwa has thanked the club's fans for the support they gave him during his stay at the club.
Nandwa finished the season on a high by leading Leopards to the GOtv Shield crown on Sunday after beating rivals Gor Mahia 1-0.
Added to that, he lifted Leopards to an improved second placed finish in the Kenyan Premier League despite finding them in mid table when he took over from Luc Eymael.
Leopards finished the KPL third in 2012.
Nandwa believes that it is fan support that has helped him perform his duties as well as he has.
" It was an honour doing duty for AFC Leopards and to finish the season as well as we have is great news for everyone including me, he said.
" The key to success has been that the fans have been behind the team and that has been a factor in how well we have performed. I thank them for the support, he added.
Nandwa is now looking forward to the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup.
" Now the focus shifts to the Harambee Stars and I hope that the success I have had at Leopards can be replicated there.
The Cup kicks off on November 27, 2013.
