The tactician says his attempt to get the issue sorted out has hit a snag and he will now take up the matter with the team’s sponsors Mumias SugarKenya Premier League (KPL) side AFC Leopards are yet to settle the Kshs 2.4 million owed to sacked coach Jan Koops two weeks after his dismissal.
The Dutch tactician says his attempt to get the issue sorted out has hit a snag and he will now take up the matter with the team’s official sponsors Mumias Sugar Company.
“I am yet to get my money. I have tried to reach the club secretary general Winstone Kituyi with no success as I am made to understand that he is out of the country.”
“On Monday I will approach Mumias Sugar management to have the issue resolved.”
Koops was fired alongside his entire technical bench two weeks ago over what chairman Alex Ole Magelo termed as failure to meet the club’s target even after heavy investment in the playing unit.
By the time he was axed he had two years left on his contract which was to expire at the end of 2014.
The team finished third in the 2012 season behind champions Tusker FC and runners up Gor Mahia, but did not win any silverware.
Koops revealed that he has sent his portfolios to more than three clubs and he could be making a comeback to top flight league by January.
Western Stima and newly promoted Kakamega Homeboyz are some of the clubs Koops is eying.
‘’I am optimistic that I will land a club. Football is my life and is a game I love.”
