AFC Leopards have dismissed reports in the social media linking coach Stewart Hall with a move to Tanzania's Simba Sports Club. Further proving the reports wrong is the fact that Leopards take on Ulinzi in a SportPesa Kenyan Premier League match at Kenyatta Stadium, Machakos on Wednesday with coach Stewart in charge.
In a post on the club page, Leopards says the Briton is happy at the club's bench and has no plans to return to send Tanzania. Before joining Leopards late last year, Stewart handled Tanzanian side Azam FC. Upon signing the Leopards deal, Stewart said he was joining the club out of choice and was determined to take the team to new heights.
He described Leopards as a giant who claim his rightful place in Kenyan football. The club termed the claims 'misguided and irresponsible', stating that the coach has a long term plan at the club. "The club wishes to assure its members and fans that information given by a section of the media regarding the future of coach Stewart Hall is totally untrue, misguided and irresponsible. The coach has a long-term project he is working on and he has assured fans that he is happy to be at Ingwe,” the club posted.
Leopards, who finished 13th last season, have won played and won two matches.They are placed second in the KPL table with six points.
