AFC Leopards keeper trainer Matthews Ottamax has quit the club just a month to league kick-off.
In a statement obtained by Goal, the former Kenya One revealed that he had left the Den on mutual agreement and wished the team all the best ahead of the new season.
“I take this chance to sincerely thank the entire National Executive Committee, the technical team, the players, the backroom staff and all the loving fans of AFC Leopards for the opportunity to work for/with them wholeheartedly.
“It's on a mutual agreement that am leaving our beloved club as I proceed to pursue new challenges elsewhere. I will cherish the times I worked with you though occasionally we experienced difficulties here and there, which I believe is normal in this industry.
“To the few players, who felt aggrieved by my straight talk, it was nothing personal but a way to nudge you to achieve your maximum best and also take your roles as players not advocates. I remain that welcoming, easy going but no nonsense big brother and to some a father.”
Ottamax, who was in the Ingwe team that last won the league title 20 years, has challenged the players to go for the same in the new season. “I believe my ‘bad words’ will wake you up and win the league for me and for our long starved dear fans!”
