Mike Baraza has rescinded his decision to quit Kenya Premier League (KPL) side AFC Leopards.

The striker announced on his facebook page on Thursday that he was calling it quits at the club owing to character assassination by a section of Ingwe fans.

This came barely 24 hours after AFC Leopards fans had forced the postponement of their KPL Top 8 match against Chemelil Sugar. The Sugar millers have already been awarded the match.

AFC Leopards Team Manager Nicholas Muyoti has confirmed to Goal.com that the striker will train with the team this evening and might as well make up the first 18 for the Tusker match.

“We talked to him and resolved the standoff. He will be training with us this evening. He made the decision out of the heat of the moment but we know Mike is a strong person."

"He is a role model to not only the young players of AFC Leopards but many upcoming footballers."

When reached for comment, Baraza confirmed that he was going back for the sake of his team mates and will give his best in the remaining two months of his current contract.

“This is a club I love and the players are my great friends. I made this decision because of them and I am going back to work hard so that we can prove the doom sayers wrong."

"We have to get this team back to the top and nothing will stop us now,” Baraza said.
