AFC Leopards to resume training today.

AFC Leopards is set to resume training today three days before they face Western Stima in a Kenyan Premier League fixture at Moi Stadium, Kisumu on Saturday.

Goals from Jacob Keli and Jackson Saleh gave the hosts a 2-0 win over visiting Muhoroni Youth on Saturday, and since then the team has not reported to camp with the management still mum over players’ salaries and allowances.

However, according to a senior player, who did not want to be named, the team is ready to play. “As players we have decided to do our part, we are tired with everything. Just as I told you earlier we are playing our hearts out with intentions of impressing potential suitors. We have the momentum, the coach is happy about our form and we want to bag maximum points against Western Stima,

“It will definitely be hard because they lost to Mathare United over the weekend, but nothing is going to deter us from getting results. We are in a strong position right now in the league but we need to bridge the gap between us and Gor Mahia.

When reached for comment about the management’s plan to pay players, club’s organizing secretary Timothy Lilumbi refused to reveal anything. “I will not comment on that right now, all I can tell you is that we are doing something for the team. Yes, we are. The club is also close to secure a sponsor but I will not tell you who it is for now.”
