Leopards push interviews for new coach to Friday

Kenyan Premier League club AFC Leopards has pushed the interviews for the vacant coach position to end of this week to allow the candidates jet in the country.

Last week, the club chairman Allan Kasavuli revealed that the team will hold interviews to pick a new head coach on Monday.

However speaking on phone, Kasavuli revealed that some of the candidates were yet to arrive forcing the club to push the exercise to later in the week.

“The two candidates will arrive tomorrow (Wednesday) after having flight problems. Therefore we will do the interviews maybe on Friday and hopefully settle on the best candidate to lead the club,” Kasavuli said.

The club has invited Briton Trevor Morgan and Italian Emmanuele Filippini for the interviews meant to find a replacement James Nandwa who was fired three weeks ago after a string of poor results.

Already former KCB coach Abdallah Juma has been appointed as assistant coach and led the club in last week’s loss to Mathare United in his first game since leaving KCB.

Leopards are currently in 11th place.
