Dennis Kitambi is set to officially exit AFC Leopards for another career growth opportunity in Bangladesh, but the Tanzanian is not closing the door on a possible return to The Den.

Kitambi joined AFC Leopards in 2016 as an assistant to Englishman Stewart Hall, rising to the position of caretaker coach following the sacking of Robert Matano in April.

But while most past coaches have exited the Den with bad memories, Kitambi, who scooped the Coach of the Month of March, says that he is not ruling out a possible return to Kenya should things not work out in Bangladesh where he’s set to link up with Hall.

“Am leaving AFC Leopards because I want to utilize the opportunity to gain experience, but I love the club and I will not hesitate to come back if things don’t work out,” Kitambi said.

Kitambi who extended his stay at The Den by two more months following the expiry of his contract in February changed the fortune of Ingwe having taken over in April where he guided the team to four straight victories.

Kitambi has since been replaced by Argentine Rodolfo Zapata.
