Belgian coach Ivan Minnaert has paid a heavy price for the poor results the team has registered in the past few weeks in a run that has seen the team edge closer to the relegation trapdoor.
The Belgian led the team to an all time low after the elimination from the GOtv Shield in the 0 – 3 loss to Western Stima on Sunday and that coming after woeful results that included a 1 – 4 loss to Kakamega Homeboyz left the management with no other choice.
At some point in the season, the team went winless in ten matches even as reports emanated from the camp that the coach had a poor working relationship[ with his players.
The elimination from the GOtv Shield tournament saw the team’s only chance at winning silverware go up in smoke and the coach was shown the door in what was the club management’s first assignment of the month.
The coach leaves Leopards at position ten on the log with 29 points drawn from 23 matches. The team next travels to Mombasa to play Bandari FC.
