AFC Leopards in trouble as more players boycott training

Two players at AFC Leopards might miss Saturday’s Kenyan Premier League match away to Nzoia Sugar in Mumias following a pay dispute at the club.

Tresor Ndikumana and Vincent Abamahoro have stayed away from training this week after formally requesting to leave the club.

It is also reported that the two say they have no resources to attend training.

“Unless the club pays their salaries in full, or at least by half, I doubt they will play for the club again,” explained the source.

AFC Leopards chairman Dan Shikanda recently confirmed that the players have been paid their salaries for the past four months.

“It is true we have two players, Ndikumana and Abamahoro, who have asked to leave,” Shikanda said.

“When you reach a point where we don’t have a steady income and the little we are getting from the gate collections are being channeled towards honouring fixtures and training facilities then things would definitely be thick,” he added.

The club needs approximately Sh15 million to pay the salary arrears.

Malian and Rwandan imports, Ismailia Diarra and Soter Kayumba respectively, have already left the club over unpaid salaries.
