AFC Leopards head coach Patrick Aussems believes his charges are far from being the finished article he set out to build despite the 12 time Kenyan champions being right in the mix of this season’s title picture.
Leopards currently sit third on the BPL standings with 33 points and just three points adrift of league leaders KCB FC.
It is the best they have come to being in with a title shout in recent years, considering that we only have six weeks between now and the June 30th deadline set by Football Kenya Federation (FKF) for when the country should have produced a representative for next season’s CAF Champions League.
With the season at the halfway point, Aussems believes his side’s league standing speaks volumes of their unfulfilled potential.
He said, “Being top at the half point of the season is not important. What is important is where we will be at the end of the season. What is impressive is that we are in the chasing pack despite having a lot to improve on.”
Leopards have a game in hand on the teams above them and next take on relegation threatened Mathare United on Thursday.
A healthy win of three or more goals will see them ascend to the summit.
