Dennis Kitambi's future at AFC Leopards has been thrown into serious doubt with reports that the caretaker boss is considering out, Goal can reveal.

Goal understands that the Tanzanian has handed in a two-month notice to AFC Leopards with reports linking him with a possible re-union with Englishman, Stewart Hall in Bangladesh.

Hall is currently with Saif Sporting Club of Bangladesh and the 59 year-old is said to have approached Kitambi whom he worked with at AFC Leopards and Azam before fate separated them last year.

Hall came with Kitambi as part of his backroom staff when he joined Ingwe at the beginning of the 2017 season. According to sources at the Den, Kitambi, who has been in charge of AFC Leopards in the last three league games on an interim basis, may leave the club at the end of April.

“He has given a notice and he may link up with Hall (Stewart) in Bangladesh,” said a source, who did not want to be named.

AFC Leopards fired coach Robert Matano and unbeaten Kitambi was tipped as a potential successor to the ‘Lion’.

On Saturday, AFC Leopards chairman, Dan Mule confirmed that Kitambi will be in charge of the team on an interim basis until the end of the first leg before the club makes a final decision whether to elevate him as the head coach, an arrangement the Tanzanian is said to be unhappy about.

“Kitambi will be in charge of the team until June. We will have to look at what we have to fill the position, but at the moments, he (Kitambi) will be in charge until and a after that, we will see whether to give him the job depending on his performance,” Mule confirmed.

Kitambi has been in charge of the team in the last three games, winning all his matches to push Ingwe to second on the log.
