AFC Leopards new coach Dorian Marian has linked up with the team in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
Marin flew to the Tanzanian capital on Monday aboard a Kenya Airways flight, and is expected to sit on the technical bench as Ingwe confront Yanga in the semi-finals of Super Cup. AFC Leopards earned a ticket to the semis after edging out Singida United 5-4 on post-match penalties after a 1-1 draw in normal time.
The new coach takes over from Briton Stewart Hall, who recently stepped down from his duties. Ingwe CEO Ronald Namai believes that new coach Dorian Marian will have a smooth transition at the club.
In an interview with Goal, Namai said that every foundation has been laid to ensure that the new trainer seamlessly fits into the system. “The transition will be quick and harmonious. He has been given the technical advice and he knows what to find,” he said, adding: “He also knows the weak areas and what he will need to work on.”
Marian is the latest entrant to the revolving door of coaches at the trouble-riddled club, and questions abound as to whether he will pass the test of time. Marian replaces Briton Stewart Hall, who threw in the towel after barely eight months at the helm.
In the recent past, Croat Zdravko Logarusic, Belgian Luc Eymael, Pieter De Jongh, and Dutchman Jan Koops, have all had troubled spells with the outfit.
