AFC Leopards To Crack The Whip On Players Boycotting Training


According to reports, AFC Leopards players boycotted training this week following their 2-1 win over Mathare last weekend. 

Some players claim to have salary arrears dating back to 2020, which is causing consternation at the den. 


 

The AFC Leopards' hierarchy has not taken their players' actions lightly. According to a memo released on Thursday, January 27th by the club's National Executive Committee, players will be deducted Ksh 5,000 per day for missing training.

"With due respect, this is to inform you that the salary for January 2022 will be reduced by Ksh 5.000 per day for the two days you've missed thus far. Even though we understand the concern, we have no objections to reasonable and informed absences that are acceptable. 

"Above all, our playing unit is an asset to the club, and instances of unapproved absence have a negative impact on performance and organizational objectives. We sincerely hope that this unfortunate situation does not occur again. Thanks for your cooperation. In this matter," part of the memo read.


 

In response to the events at the Den, Mozzart Sports interviewed an Ingwe player (identity withheld), and this is what he said:

"We have not been paid in full since 2020, we have not received payments for certain months, which has led to us missing training, but the club yesterday sent a letter to all players about salary reductions. We are suffering. Sometimes the club sends Ksh10,000 to cushion our financial woes, but that is not enough to survive here in the city with a lot of bills still pending."
