Goal now understands that the Argentine coach, who also holds an American passport, is expected to leave on October 6

AFC Leopards head coach Rodolfo Zapata will leave the country on October 6 after he officially steps down as club head coach.

Zapata informed the players that he will not be with the team next season after Sunday's 1-0 defeat to Sofapaka during the FKF Shield semis tie at Kasarani.

Goal now understands that the Argentine coach, who also holds an American passport, is expected to leave the country on October 6 for his home in the United States of America.

“The coach will leave on October 6. He had made the decision weeks ago, it's not because of Sunday's defeat," a source close to the coach revealed.

When reached for comment, AFC Leopards Organizing Secretary Timothy Lilumbi denied the exit reports saying the tactician has not handed in his resignation letter. “He (Zapata) has not resigned. So for now it remains a speculation. He is still the coach until he decides otherwise,” Lilumbi told Goal .

Former AFC Leopards coach Dennis Kitambi has emerged as the front-runner to succeed Zapata while Nakumatt coach Melis Medo is also being considered.
