Logarusic expected back to steer Ingwe in TPL second leg
Cash strapped AFC Leopards expect head coach Zdravko Logarusic back from a two-week holiday to steer the club in the second leg of the Kenyan Premier League.
Rumors have been rife that the outspoken Croat will not be coming back after announcing he is "leaving" the club in his Facebook account.
Logarusic’s message read : "Thank you.. to my Leopards fans..thanks to my players...it was[sic] for me incredible time...THANK YOU..and GOODBAY....your coach ZL ..."
On Monday, Club deputy secretary general Asava Adima clarified the issue to reporters.
“He (Logarusic Zdravko) just requested for a two-week holiday and we expect him back,” said Asava.
Despite the many off-pitch distractions, AFC Leopards is a strong contender for a top three position. They are currently ranked in a respectable fourth position in the log with 25 points from 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses. Arch-rivals Gor Mahia leads with 39 points, Sofapaka and Ulinzi occupy 2nd and 3rd spot with 27 points.
Logarusic had to use a makeshift side during the last first leg match against Sofapaka after senior players staged a boycott due to unpaid dues, a match they won 1-0 even without a fielding a “true” goalkeeper.
