AFC Leopards Coach Unhappy With Club Executives

AFC Leopards coach Patrick Aussems is unhappy with his bosses over unpaid players’ and team official’s wages.

The Belgian coach admitted to be irked by the continued unprofessionalism at the Kenyan Premier League that is making his work tougher.

“The technical bench, the staff and the players are facing many challenges (no salaries, no allowances, daily issues…) which prevent the group from working properly. Carelessness of some people? Lack of professionalism? Hopefully this situation will be fixed as quickly as possible,” Aussems posted on Twitter.

Sources inside club indicate that the technical staff have not received their four months salaries and have been told to go look for employment elsewhere if they are not prepared to be patient.

AFC Leopards chairman Dan Shikanda ‘s phone has been ringing unanswered since Saturday afternoon and he could not be reached for comment.

Aussems joined Leopards in February, winning silver in FKF Cup placing Ingwe once again as a domestic force to be reckoned with in regional football.

He was previously in charge of South African top-flight outfit Black Leopards where he was shown the door after a series of poor results.

Aussems served as national Technical Director of the Benin Football Federation and national coach and guided the side to African Cup of Nations.

He also had stint with AC Leopards Dolisie in Congo,  Al-Hilal  of Sudan and Simba Sports Club of Tanzania-where he guided the side to the quarterfinals of the 2018-19 African Champions League.
