Argentine coach promises to go for top quality when signing foreign players for Ingwe

AFC Leopards have been signing foreign players but they end up dismissing them for none performance.

Ghanaian striker Gilbert Fiamenyo, Henry Uche and Eric Bekoe are just some of the latest example of foreign players, who came to The Den but failed to click.

Ingwe head coach Rodolfo Zapata says he wants to bring someone, who is good, someone to help the team progress, not signing for the sake of it.

“When you go for a foreigner it means you are going for an exceptional talent, someone, who has something special that you cannot find at home. It is not good to bring someone, who will be competing with your players on the bench, that is great injustice to the team.

“If it happens that we will sign one, it is a person who will be exceptional, one who will help us hit our goals,” Zapata told Goal.

AFC Leopards is aiming at finishing in the top three this season, as well as clinching the Shield Cup.
