Mbungo: With more intensity Leopards will play even better

Andre Cassa Mbungo has AFC Leopards playing with a renewed desire and after eight rounds of play, Ingwe sit 3rd on the KPL standings just a point adrift of top spot.

They have one of the league’s best joint defences with only three goals conceded and their 10 goals scored, make them one of six teams this season to have hit the double digit mark.

Though they were unable to add on to this tally on Sunday against Ulinzi Stars as they played to a 0-0 draw, Rwandese tactician Mbungo, who is in his first full season as Leopards coach, believes there is yet more to come from his charges with a little bit of intensity in the final third, expected to make them a formidable side.


“I said it when I first joined that when I settle in my role we will play beautifully. We want to keep the ball on the ground and move it around, not hoof it around aimlessly.

“We tried that against Ulinzi even though we did not get the goal I believe the fans have been happy with how we have played.

“What we need to do now is add more intensity in attack and if we do that we will score goals which will in turn lead us to getting the wins,” he said.

Leopards’ performances have brought up debates of if they have what it takes to go on and win a first league title in 21 years. A win in their next match-up against perennial rivals Gor Mahia in the Mshemeji Derby on Sunday will for sure add in fueling the belief.
