Akwana wants Leopards job
Former Kenyan international Ezekiel Akwana has expressed interest in the vacant AFC Leopards’ assistant coach job.
Akwana, who parted company with Division One League side Mahakama at the close of the 2012 season, is planning to hand in his application to the Kenyan Premier League [KPL] giants before the end of the week.
The post fell vacant after Tom Olaba, who had earlier been appointed as the club’s deputy coach, was elevated to the top job after the club’s management revoked the appointment of Portuguese Coach Vitor Trinidad Salvado a few weeks ago.
According to Akwana, who is also a former Leopards defender, is looking at getting the job and working as Olaba’s deputy.
“At the moment I am not attached to any club and I have received many offerings but Leopard’s job is my first priority,” said Akwana.
“We haven’t discussed with the club yet but I am in the process of submitting my applications-maybe before Friday.’’
“I have been at the club and I know its history better. I have enough experience and I believe working with Olaba will make us revive Leopards’ glory. I know it is challenging, but given that opportunity I will give my best shot.’’
Previously, Akwana plied his trade with Mathare United and Sofapaka as player and then as coach at Sofapaka and Rangers.
