Olaba backs charges to impress



AFC Leopards caretaker coach Tom Olaba has expressed confidence in his side’s ability ahead of the upcoming season.

Olaba was recently named the club’s assistant coach and would have been serving under Portuguese tactician Vitor Salvado.

However, the deal between the club and Salvado failed to materialise, and it is now up to Olaba to guide the team in the new campaign in an interim capacity. Giving his opinion of his current squad, Olaba said that he believes he has one of the most competitive outfits at his disposal, and he is sure they will prove their worth.

“We had a number of fine players in the team and after the December recruitment we got a number of good players on board. As such, I am sure that as the season starts, we shall be among the strongest sides of the league,” said Olaba.

“When it comes to player selection for matches, each of the individuals on the team will have an equal opportunity. It does not matter whether you have been in the team longer. As long as someone else is performing better than you, then he will be selected ahead of you,” he added.

AFC finished third in the 2012 Kenyan Premier League season.
