Olaba targets league crown



New AFC Leopards assistant coach Tom Olaba wants to help deliver the Kenyan Premier League title to the club in the coming season.

Olaba was early this week appointed to the role after weeks of speculation linking him with the side.

“I am proud to be AFC Leopards assistant coach. It is an honour for me and my family to be associated with a great club like Leopards. I have been talking to the club for a while and the chairman says that he wants me in the job because I can deliver.”

“They have confidence in my ability and I hope to give them good results. The league title has been a source of frustration for the club so that is what I would like to win while here. It has been 15 years since the club last won the league which is something we will look to correct,” he said.

As for whether he would have liked to be head coach, Olaba says he is content with what he has.

“The head coach position is very attractive but I am happy here,” he said.

“In my view, it does not matter where you are to influence the team and that is how I see it. Getting the club back to winning ways is what matters and as long as we do it, I will be happy,” he added.

Olaba was in charge of Tanzanian Premier League side Mtibwa Sugar in his last coaching stint.
