Kimani confirmed AFC Leopards assistant coach

Former Kenyan international Anthony Modo Kimani is the new AFC Leopards assistant coach, the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giants confirmed late on Tuesday 19 March.

Kimani, also a former Mathare United defender, served at AFC Leopards for two years starting 2015, and emerges as a surprise pick for the position, with another club legend, Boniface Ambani having earlier been linked with the post.

Two year deal

The club reports that Kimani will take charge in the new role under Rwandan Cassa Andre Mbungo with immediate effect, having agreed to a two year deal.

“AFC Leopards SC are delighted to announce the appointment of Anthony Kimani as the new club assistant coach.

“The former AFC Leopards and Kenya captain has signed a two year deal with the club and begins duties immediately,” Leopards posted.

His experience, hard work and leadership skills, the club says, were key considerations in his appointment to the role.
