AFC Leopards vice-chairman Walter Onyino has said the club's executive committee is looking at the option of bringing in a helper for besieged coach Tom Olaba even as he ruled out the option of firing the tactician.

Onyino said while they remain concerned about the team's poor start to the season, sacking Olaba is not an option and pointed out that the side is facing technical challenges that need to be sorted out.

"Right now we are not considering sending him away but rather to get someone who can assist him with the technical aspects of the game."

"As an executive, we believe that is where the problem lies and sacking a coach is not the solution because the issues will still be there," he told

Onyino said they are at a cross roads on who to help Olaba insisting their options are limited.

"The biggest challenge we are facing now is on who to appoint as a helper for Olaba because we are not seeing anyone who can fit the bill," he added.

Olaba is under a lot of pressure after his team lost 3-2 to Karuturi Sports in a Kenya Premier League match on Sunday. The team has drawn their two previous games against Sony and Chemelil and remain win less in three outings.
