Ingwe vice-chairman Walter Onyino confirms to Goal.com that papers of the Portuguese tactician are being scrutinized afresh by club's top officials

Kenya Premier League side AFC Leopards is now urging club supporters to exercise 'patience' as the management tries to quickly resolve the anomalies detected in Portuguese' coach Victor Salvado's CV.

This follows a two day series of exclusives exposed by Goal.com regarding the status of the tactician, including revelations that club (AFC) officials had mistaken the name of the team Salvado has previously managed for a top flight outfit in Portugal.

Ingwe Vice-Chairman Walter Onyino, has added his voice to the debate by confirming that the coach's papers are being looked into afresh by the club administrators who are keen to amicably solve the problem.

"I am calling on our fans to be patient. Under Olaba (Tom) the team is in safe hands. He is experienced and highly skilled and the fans should have no worries."

"Everything is not yet complete. He will also need to have his visa processed and also work permit. This may take long but he will be here with us at the opportune moment, but in the meantime, Olaba will do the job."

On Monday, a source confirmed to Goal.com that the club had written to Portuguese FA seeking to be furnished with Salvado's coaching experience and paper work.

Salvado promptly contacted Goal.com to offer his side of the story, that included an admission that indeed he had not managed the Super Liga team (Benfica) but an affiliate outfit that currently features in league honer, just below the first Division of the league structure.

AFC Leopards are scheduled to play a friendly match against Tanzanian outfit Azam on Saturday in readiness for the 2013 season that kicks-off on February 16.
