AFC Leopards SC has been thrown into panic as the transfer window heads to a close following fears that their new signing may not arrive at the Club as intended.
Kenyanstar on Wednesday learnt that the Club management who took control of mid-season signings have been thrown into blame game and panic mode as some of their target signings declined joining the Club.
KS sources indicate that the club is in disarray over the manner in which they conducted the signings with a storm brewing that some officials put their own selfish interests ahead of the Club’s.
The first signs of discord appeared in the Dorian Marin case where players openly revolted against the coach as pressure mounted from the discordant Club management.
The Club on Thursday was contemplating flying an official to Burundi to fast track the deal to have Alexis Kitenge join the Club. The reasons for Alexis’ delay are unclear since Ugandan signing Kizito arrived in Nairobi yesterday to link up with the squad.
There is divided opinion on how the Club is re-signing players it had released due to indiscipline at the end of last season. notably Kepha Aswani who was singled out for incitement by the management as the case for his release by then coach Stewart Hall.
AFC Leopards who lie in the bottom half of the table are seeking a revival in the second half of the season.
