AFC Leopards chairman Dan Mule has played down reports that the club has not awarded players money received from Super Cup.
Ingwe finished second in the tournament after losing to rivals Gor Mahia in the final and were entitled to Sh1million. "We have not seen a shilling out of the Sh1million received. No word, no nothing," a senior player had told Goal on Thursday, "It is not fair that we are not being appreciated for our efforts in Dar. The seemingly 'small' things like this end up demoralizing us."
However, Mule has come clean on the issue. "We were given Sh250, 000 from the sponsors when we were in Tanzania, and I personally gave that cash to the players, whole of it without taking a penny. The remaining amount, Sh750, 000, has not been wired to our account and once that is done, that is when we will sit and decide on what to do with the money.
"Sometimes people do not see the good you do to the team, but faults and once they are not there, they will create one."
AFC Leopards will face Mathare United this weekend in a Kenyan Premier League match.
