Former AFC Leopards head coach Rodolfo Zapata says he has set a foundation for the team ahead of the new season.
The Argentine was shown the door last month after a series of unimpressive outings and Tom Juma given the caretaker role alongside Gilbert Selebwa and Mathew Ottamax. Zapata is happy with his contribution and hopes it does not go to waste.
"It is unfortunate that things went south when I was in the process of making the team great again. Sometimes you cannot reverse decisions especially with some politics in it but I am delighted with my input in the team despite the fact that most of the players were not my signings.
"My biggest achievement was to introduce young players in the system and give them vital experience. It is a foundation for the team and a vital one for that matter. The team is headed in the right direction and if the management will stick to the report I left them then things will be good."
Leopards will face Nzoia Sugar in the final match of the season on Sunday, before playing Ulinzi Stars in the Shield Cup third-place playoff.
