In Summary
  • But we need to remain focused and continue working hard in our remaining matches as we aim at clinching the title and any other silverware.
  • Fans who have stood with the team should not relent but maintain the spirit and turn out in large numbers during our matches to support the players.

Kenyan football is in deep financial crises. But despite the gloom, any supporter of AFC Leopards must be happy with Ingwe’s good run.

The team is poised to win the league this season if it maintains its sterling performance.

After five matches, Leopards are in the driving seat in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) after grabbing 10 points.

Just when pundits had assumed that the battle for the league title would be a two-team affair between Gor Mahia and Wazito FC who splashed more than Sh8 million on players ahead of the new season, Ingwe has bounced back into contention.

How wrong they were!

Mean business

As we focus on winning the league title we last clinched in 1998, I want to congratulate Coach Andre Casa Mbungo and the players. If Ingwe’s 1-0 victory over Wazito was dismissed as a mere one off, our 4-0 drubbing of Chemelil in Mumias were proof enough that Mbungo and his charges mean business.

The Rwandese’s foresight and determination has paid dividends.

The young talented players have emboldened Leopards. Going by the recent exploits, there is no doubt that the boys are desperate for the league crown after waiting for 21 years.

Mbungo’s highly-tactical game plans have elicited applause especially from the fans who had previously criticised him over team selection.
