AFC Leopards interim coach Antony Kimani says he is comfortable working in ”any position” at the club ahead of the new season.

Kimani has been serving as an interim coach since Casa Mbungo left in December 2019 due to the financial struggles the club was undergoing.

“I have always been committed to my duties at the club and I will always be in any capacity the club wants me to serve in.

I’m looking forward to next season and we want to fight for all the titles available, we have a great squad and a good team that we are building, and I believe we will make our fans very happy,” said Kimani.

With Football Kenya Federation yet to give a clear road map on how and when the new season will begin as they await the Ministry of Sports green light on the same, club chairman Dan Shikanda insists the former Kenya international will continue serving in his position.

“Modo has always been the club assistant coach since Casa left, and his job is as safe as money is in the bank safe, we all know what he has done for the club since he joined as a player and also when he joined the technical bench, he loves the club and is committed to his duties and that’s why he will remain with us, and no one can interfere with his role,”insisted Shikanda.

Having finished sixth last season with 40 points, the club is keen to add two more signings before they close their transfers business.

“We are close to finishing the transfer business and we’re almost done with the two more signings which I can’t disclose because we are not yet through with paper work, but I”m excited with the business we have done so far; it will make us very competitive next season,” the former club captain told Citizen Digital.
