Mule promises Leopards turn-around

27 July 2016, 13:38

Nairobi - Newly-appointed AFC Leopards chairman Daniel Mule has promised to return the club to its former glory after a period of relative mediocrity in recent seasons.

Mule was named as the club's new chairman on Sunday, having earned 1160 votes to the 822 picked up by rival candidate Maurice Amahwa.

Mule was previously a co-chairman at the club together with Mathews Opwora, who was also in the race, but withdrew on Saturday and gave his support to his former colleague.

"I feel happy after winning today," Mule told Capital Sport. "It was a tough race but the victory is for all the AFC Leopards fans.

"The work has just begun. I ask everyone to work together regardless of whichever camp someone was. The bigger picture is the team, not individuals," he added.

Mule's foremost challenge will be to ensure Leopards wins the Kenyan Premier League again, the club having gone nearly 20-years without the title.

"We want to make this club as great as it has always been," said the 48-year old businessman.

"Our progress has been slowed down over the last few years due to wrangles but we want to put that behind us. This is a new start and among the things we want to do is make the club successful on and off the pitch.

"It has been almost 20 years since we last won the league and that is not good for a club of our stature. This year definitely we can't make it but next year we have to fight for it," he said.
