- AFC Leopards appoint Czech Republic national Thomas Trucha as new head coach
- Trucha, 49, signs two-year deal with the 1998 KPL champions
- Antony ‘Modo’ Kimani assumes assistant coach role
Kenyan Premier League side AFC Leopards have confirmed Czech Republic national Thomas Trucha as the new head coach.
The 47-year-old who joins Ingwe on a two-year deal has previously coached Botswana giants Township Rollers.
“AFC Leopards is pleased to announce Thomas Trucha as our new head coach. The 47-year-old Czech Republic national is a UEFA PRO licensed coach,” the statement from the club reads in part.
Trucha who has been overseeing the club’s preseason training in Iten beat four other candidates to the job.
Former club captain Antony ‘Modo’ Kimani assumes the assistant head coach role after acting in the head coach capacity since the start of the year.
“He will be assisted by Antony Kimani who resumes his position after serving in caretaker capacity,” the stamen concludes.
Trucha fills the void left by Rwandese Andre Casa Mbungo who resigned at the start of the year citing accrued salary arrears.
The former Township Rollers tactician is set for unveiling on Friday.
