The search for a new coach at AFC Leopards is on and in the meantime Ezekiel Akwana will be the acting head coach, the club management has confirmed.
This comes in the aftermath of the departure of head coach Ivan Minnaert as the Belgian tactician was sacked on Thursday 1 September following a spate of bad results and misconduct as stated by the club.
Akwana has been serving as one of Minnaert’s two assistants and Mule revealed that he will lead the team in the remaining matches of the season with Nicholas Muyoti serving as his deputy.
“We have a few matches to the end of the season and so after this decision, we will just have Akwana as the acting head coach to see us through the season with Muyoti as his assistant.
“In the meantime we will start the search for a new coach with the intention of making the team better for the future,” he said.
Akwana’s tenure as the interim head coach will start with a trip to Mombasa to take on Bandari in a Saturday 10 September league clash.
