Kitambi named Leopards assistant coach

AFC Leopards head coach Stewart Hall has confirmed the appointment of Tanzanian Nicholas Kitambi as the team’s new assistant coach.

Kitambi will take over from Ezekiel Akwana and Nicholas Muyoti who were sacked towards the end of October after the team badly underperformed and in his confirmation Hall termed Kitambi a perfect assistant.

The two have previously worked together in Tanzania, handling Azam FC and have good chemistry having led the team to glory in Tanzania.

The Briton indicated that he will not be getting a second assistant coach, with his entire focus now being on recruiting players.

“Kitambi and I understand each other’s philosophy because we have worked together for many, many years. He is also an expert in his area and I have no doubt in my mind that he will add a lot of value to the technical bench,” Hall told kpl.co.ke.

“I don’t intend getting any other assistants at this point as I would like to concentrate on player recruitment now that the year is almost ending.”
