AFC Leopards Goalkeeping Crisis As Mulili Is The Only Left Option

The FKF Premier League is back with AFC Leopards staring at a goalkeeping crisis following Ochan, Oyemba and Owade exit, leaving them with Mulili as the only option at the goalpost.

The 2021/2022 Football Kenya Federation Premier League campaign kicks off this afternoon and AFC Leopards is in an unstable form with the player exodus being a major issue.

AFC Leopards who managed to finish the 2020/2021 season in position four - their highest ever finish since the 2013 season - was hit by a crisis when top players exited the side.

A number of players: Elvis Rupia, Benjamin Ochan, Fabrice Mugheni, Austin Odhiambo, former club captain Robinson Kamura, John Oyemba, Ezekiel Owade, Yusuf Mainge, Said Tsuma and Hansel Ochieng have walked out of the club.

Chingwe will play against defending champions Tusker tomorrow with only Maxwel Mulili as the only keeper. Mulili is a former national team under-17 goalkeeper and has little experience in the top flight after being forced to the bench after facing tough competition from the experienced goalkeepers.

Ochan left the club due to contractual differences, likewise to keepers Oyemba and Owade.

However, FIFA's ban on the club has blocked them from replacing the players who have left.
