Trouble is brewing at AFC Leopards with reports that Argentine Rodolfo Zapata could be on his way out of The Den.

Zapata, who joined the club in May, is considering his options, key among them, quitting the club after falling out with a section of the club officials.

Goal understands that the former Gaborone United coach could handle his last game on Sunday when AFC Leopards takes on Gor Mahia in the Mashemeji derby at Kasarani.

“The coach is not happy with what is going on at the club. He wants to get a new apartment but the top brass is not ready to offer the same.

"Also there are issues to do with the technical bench. Zapata thinks there are some forces that want him to fail,” a source close to the coach told Goal.

Interestingly, Zapata’s first match in Kenya was against Gor Mahia during the Super Cup staged in Nakuru.

Zapata took over from Tanzanian Dennis Kitambi and he could become the third coach to have handled Ingwe in the last six months.

Robert Matano was fired early in the season before Kitambi took charge on an interim basis.

Ingwe are currently fifth on the log after 23 rounds of matches.
