Former Kenyan international Anthony Kimani has once again been named as AFC Leopards’ interim head coach following the departure of head coach Tomas Trucha.
Kimani, who served as Trucha’s assistant will take charge of the team until a new head coach is named. He will work alongside, club Football Operations Manager Tom Juma.
It is the second time Kimani will be serving as interim coach. In December 2019 when Andre Cassa Mbungo left the club, Kimani was handed the reins until November 2020 when the former Township Rollers coach was handed the team.
During his first reign as interim coach, Leopards displayed some good flowing football and there were calls from Ingwe faithful for him to be handed the job permanently.
Kimani is adored by Leopard’s faithful having served the club both as a player and as a coach. He was part of Leopards’ that won the GOTV Shield in 2013 without conceding a goal. Leopards downed arch-rivals Gor Mahia in the final staged at the Nyayo National Stadium.
The tactician’s first assignment at the dugout will be against newly promoted Bidco United at the Moi International Sports Center Kasarani on Sunday. Leopards will be hoping to get another win after winning the season opener against Tusker FC.
The match against Bidco United will be live on StarTimes TV.
