- AFC Leopards legend Boniface Ambani is concerned that cartels might pull the club down and called on the club’s management to look into the matter.
The former Harambee stars forward believe that Leopards’ opportunity to become champions again has been interfered with by the cartels. He noted that Ingwe’s brand is well established and should not stoop so low to the level of fighting relegation
“The club need to deal with the rising issue of cartels who are out to ruin the good progress club chairman Dan Shikanda and his team have made,” he said.
The former Kenya international acknowledged the willpower and commitment of players, who have strived to always win matches and expressed loyalty amid the financial crunch that has been biting the club.
“I’m impressed with the structures being put in place, especially the investment in young players. We now have the winning mentality in the team that has been lacking. Anthony Kimani and his technical bench have also done good work,” he expressed.
Ambani is pissed off by cartels who have been derailing the club and lamented that despite commanding massive following by fans in the country have gone to the extent of manipulating even the gate collections that are meant for the club’s development.
He highlighted the fact that the cartels are responsible for the shrewd selection of players to the club as they interfere with the process of recruiting players.
“They are opting to go for the expensive international rejects hence burdening the club even more,” he said.
The former football star believes that AFC Leopards can excel in football but only if the right management was put in place. As it is football is a big industry all over the world and its only proper management that make it showcase talent
