AFC Leopards coach Robert Matano has sent a coded message to the club’s Executive to spend big in the next transfer window.

Ingwe finds themselves in a precarious situation where they have to fight to stay afloat in the top flight after a treacherous season of bad luck.

Matano, who lost yet again in the domestic competition, this time to Posta Rangers over the weekend, has revealed that AFC Leopards are in dire shortage of players befitting the calibre of the club.

“We have a limitation with the kind of calibre of players needed for such a club like Leopards,” the former Ulinzi and Bidco United coach lamented after a 2-0 defeat by Rangers.

“There’s nothing we can do at this time of the season but to keep fighting until the end and hope to finish in a respectable position. Which is sad considering this is a club that should be challenging for top honours year in, year out," Matano told KPL official website.

Ingwe  are currently 13 on the table with 32 points, just four places up the danger zone.
