Ingwe chairman Allan Kasavuli reveals that the Belgian tactician is expected in Nairobi on Tuesday and will be in charge against Gor Mahia on Sunday

AFC Leopards’ officials have confirmed that coach Luc Eymael is expected in Nairobi on Tuesday and will be in charge when the club takes on arch-rivals Gor Mahia in Sunday’s derby at Kasarani.

According to Leopards’ chairman Allan Kasavuli, the Belgian tactician will jet in pending confirmation of his flight from Belgium where he is holed up.

“We spoke to him and agreed that he returns and sees off the remainder of his contract,” Kasavuli told Goal.

The club was expected to institute disciplinary action against Eymael but the chairman insists this was not necessary and have let the matter lie.

 “The coach has been in touch with me and we expect him to arrive on Tuesday pending flight confirmation. The executive committee is determined to ensure that he sees through his remaining period of the contract despite the two week absence he took without permission,” said Kasavuli.

At the same time, the club’s Secretary General George Aladwa has announced that the club has made an official complaint against centre referee Isaac Ochieng for allegedly denying them a penalty during Sunday’s match against City Stars.

Aladwa claims the referee is biased and Leopards’ will boycott all matches handled by him.

“We ask both Kenyan Premier League (KPL) and Football Kenya Federation (FKF) to take disciplinary action against him and be excluded from our matches for the rest of the season.

“Furthermore, we ask that the remaining fixtures for the top five teams be played at the same time to ensure no one is favored,” he said.
