Selebwa took time to remind fans of the rules set by the club but affirmed that no one will break the regulations

AFC Leopards team manager Gilbert Selebwa has vowed that he will not bend the rules in favour of certain players at The Den.

The decision by Selebwa come few days after club fans accused him of being part of the problem that led to coach Rodolfo Zapata being shown the door.

A section of Ingwe fans made unsubstantiated allegations against Selebwa that he used his position to undermine Zapata, leading to the poor performance by the sleeping Kenyan Premier League giants.

Selebwa took time to remind fans of the rules set by the club but affirmed that no one will break the regulations under his watch.

“My name is being smeared with unsubstantiated allegations. Certain things will not pass as long as I am still in charge of the Administrative and Logistics Docket. You can judge me on these simple rules that are within my Jurisdiction.” 

Among the stern rules posted by the football, administrator states that every player shall report to training at the stipulated time without fail adding that the team bus shall not wait for any latecomers.

Should such cases be recorded, Selebwa says that the latecomers will find their own means to training or league games. “No player shall come in different attire either in training or on match days and that no one is allowed to put on a cap during meal times.

“A player, who will have missed three training sessions in a week will not be allowed back until he is cleared by the medical team or the office. A player, who uses vulgar language and looks down his peers shall face disciplinary action.
