Yakhama steps down officially for Koops
By Robin Toskin
Nick Yakhama has officially stepped down as AFC Leopards coach and will act as Jan Koops’ assistant.
The Dutchman, 70, took over the coaching during the week to prepare 12th-placed Leopards for the Thika United clash this afternoon at Thika Municipal Stadium.
Koops’ immediate task would be to plug the leaky Ingwe defence, which has conceded 11 goals in the last six matches.
Thika United beat AFC Leopards 2-0 in Mumias on May 8, setting off a poor run of results for the fallen giants.
"Who becomes the head coach or assistant was never an issue. What is important is how to return to winning ways which I believe is a matter of time," Yakhama said ahead of the clash.
Leopards made headlines during the mini-transfer window by signing Charles Okwemba, Mike Baraza, Jimmy Bagaye, Collins Kisuya and Jonas Nahimana.
However, the felines are yet to see the dividends although Burundian Nahimana and Kisuya have opened their KPL accounts with goals against Sofapaka and Tusker.
Striker Baraza bagged a brace against West Kenya Sugar in the FKL Cup.
