Nairobi - Newly appointed AFC Leopards coach Henrick Pieters de Jong says he wants to win the Kenyan Premier League in his time at the club.
De Jong was unveiled by Leopards Tuesday as he embarks on a journey to lift a club that is struggling in the current season.
He admits that he has a tough task on his hands but says that he hopes to lift the title at some point in his stay.
" We want to win the title which has not happened at this club for a very long time, he said.
" I know that we are a long way off at the moment but the thing is to work hard and try as much to move to the upper places in the league.
" I understand that the fans want to do well and to be happy and I will try as much as I can to do so, he added.
Leopards are currently 12 points off top spot held by champions Gor Mahia, hard to see them making an impression on the title race close to the halfway point of the season.
