Salvado ready for Leopards challenge



New AFC Leopards head coach Vitor Salvado feels he is well equipped to handle the pressure that comes with managing the Tusker Premier League giants.

Salvado was recently appointed to the role to replace departed Dutchman Jan Koops, who was fired from the club at the end of the 2012 season.

Salvado, who hails from Portugal, will be assisted by veteran trainer Tom Olaba.

Olaba is currently in charge of the team as the former is still awaiting his work permit. Leopards are expected to challenge for honours in all three of the domestic cups on offer, which are the FKF Cup, the League and the Top Eight tournament.

Speaking of these expectations, Salvado says he will lay out a strategy that will see the club impress.

“I know that a lot is expected of me as I take this post but I am sure I will handle it all,” said Salvado.

“Once I arrive at the team, I will sit down with the other members of the technical bench, as well as club officials and players and come up with a strategy that will see us sail smoothly through the year,” he added.

Salvado is expected to arrive in the country next week.
