Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giants AFC Leopards have parted ways with four technical bench members following a spate of poor results the team has had in the recent times, most recently the loss to Sofapaka on Friday 28 October.

The club management held a meeting with the stand in technical bench members for a better part of the day on Saturday 29 October and in the aftermath, the club chairman Dan Mule confirmed to Soka that they have terminated deals for coaches Ezekiel Akwana, Nicholas Muyti, goalkeeper trainer Dick Francis and Team Manager Joseph Milimu.

“We had a meeting with them over the state of affairs at the team and agreed that for the good of the team and fans, we part ways. So we had a mutual agreement to terminate their contracts,” he said.

Coach’s call

Mule however said the players will be spared the management’s wrath at the moment, opting to have the newly appointed coach Stewart Hall have his own assessment of them in the remainder of the season before ruling on their fate.

“We have decided to let the coach deal with the players; he will be in charge for the last two matches and will be able to make his own assessment then see who to keep and who to release,” he added.

After 28 matches, the team is placed 13th with just 30 points and is in real danger of failing to make it to the top half.
