Ingwe Insider Confident Team Will Return To Winning Ways, Lifts Lid On Intensive Training At The Den
After the departures of Benjamin Ochan, Ezekiel Owade, and John Oyemba, AFC Leopards were left with no first-team goalkeeper and were forced to promote Maxwell Mulili from their junior team to take over the first-team goalkeeping duties. Mulili was new, had no experience, and had no backup, so it was nearly impossible to believe that he would effectively play all of Ingwe's games this season.
So far this season, AFC Leopards have struggled in almost every aspect of their game, with only one win, one draw, and four losses. To recover from their poor start, AFC Leopards must start winning matches, and the key to doing so is outscoring opponents.
Could the AFC Leopards' bad luck be getting worse? The latest news from Tanzania could spell trouble for Ingwe. Azam are reportedly looking to relieve their head coach, George Lwandamini, of his duties as head coach due to poor results in recent weeks, and one of their preferred candidates for Lwandamini's job is Leopards Coach, Patrick Aussems.
AFC Leopards began their current season with a 1-0 win over defending champions Tusker, then fought for a barren draw against league runners-up KCB. After the KCB game, all hell broke loose, as Ingwe went on to lose their next four games before the break. The troubles of AFC Leopards are well understood given the calibre of players who left before the start of the season.
Could things get any worse for the AFC Leopards? According to the latest reports, another storm is brewing at The Den following a mass exodus following last season and the latest run in which the AFC Leopards have lost four consecutive games in their first six games of the current season.
The last time the AFC Leopards won the Kenyan League was in 1998. Since then, the league title has eluded them, and for Ingwe fans, seeing them lose four of their six matches so far this season has been discouraging. However, the poor results are understandable given that Coach Aussems has been working with an inexperienced squad due to FIFA's restrictions on reinforcements after they lost some of their key players at the end of last season.
Coach Patrick Aussems of AFC Leopards has questioned the professionalism of the Football Kenya Federation Premier League side, implying that some of the club's officials are irresponsible. Due to insufficient funds, the club has struggled on and off the field, and last season, most of the important players left after the team failed to pay their debts.
Coach Patrick Aussems of the AFC Leopards could be on his way out to Simba. As an Ingwe fan, this may come as a surprise, but why is he being linked to Simba? Simba are currently without a coach after parting ways with Didier Gomes Da Rosa following their shocking elimination from the CAF Champions League at the hands of Botswana's Jwaneng Galaxy.
The AFC Leopards were able to bring in some much-needed reinforcements on deadline day after being left understaffed due to a mass exodus of players following last season. Among the numerous deals they completed was the signing of Gor Mahia centerback Joachim Oluoch, who had recently left the club despite being offered a two-year contract extension.
AFC Leopards' 1-0 loss to Sofapaka this past weekend was their 4th consecutive loss this season. Even though their results are expected considering the lack of quality currently in their squad, Ingwe fans are not taking this poor performance lightly and they want some response as soon as possible.
AFC Leopards suffered their fourth straight league defeat when they were defeated 1-0 by Sofapaka in Wundanyi on Sunday. With the loss, they are now in 15th place in the table, and if their dismal form continues, Ingwe may find themselves in a relegation struggle. Gor Mahia drop more points
Former AFC Leopards coach, Dutchman Jan Koops has been adopted by a family in Busia County. Koops, 80, joined the club famoulsy known as Ingwe towards the end of the 2010 season when the Club was ranked low in the league before leading it to a 5th position in 2011.
AFC Leopards are keen to boost their squad and especially their defence line; in this regard Ingwe has approached former Gor Mahia and Harambee Stars captain Musa Mohammed. Musa is set to inject experience to the young Ingwe squad which is struggling after losing a number of their first team players due to financial difficulties.
Former Gormahia fc and Harambee stars defender Musa Mohamed could rejoin the Kenya premier league after having problems with Zambiam super league side Nkana FC. Musa Mohamed captained Gormahia fc to a league title as well as Kenya national team Harambee stars in the CECAFA senior Challenge Cup. He helped stars to lift the maiden cup in a final held in Machakos 2019.

As Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards prepare to face off in the first Mashemeji Derby of the 2021/22 Football Kenya Federation Premier League season, we examine Ingwe's squad and identify players who can play important roles against the defending champions.
With Austin Odhiambo in their midfield, AFC Leopards were quite the force. Odhiambo was skilled at orchestrating attacks, releasing key passes, and was a superb dead-ball specialist. His importance at Ingwe was seen when, back in 2020, AFC Leopards were close to suing Gor Mahia for allegedly signing him from under their noses.
On Saturday, the Bankers and Ingwe drew their second top-flight match of the season at Thika Stadium. On Saturday, KCB and AFC Leopards drew a dull 0-0 draw at Thika Stadium in the FKF Premier League. Before the Fifa international break, the Bankers had fallen 2-1 to previous league champions Gor Mahia in their season opener, while Ingwe had scored a morale-boosting 1-0 win against current champions Tusker.
Even with the mass exodus of players that they have had to endure, AFC Leopards have not been able to get some key replacements due to a FIFA transfer ban. Luckily, AFC Leopards managed to raise approximately KSh 8 million, which they are set to use to clear the salary arrears of former coach, Cassa Mbungo, and other international players, which got them banned in the first place.
The AFC Leopards last won the league title back in 1998. There are seasons where they have come close to lifting it, but last season's fourth place was not it. For the 2021-2022 season, their aim to end the 22-year drought is still on and their 1-0 surprising win over Tusker in the league opener was an indication that they are ready to shake the Kenyan football scene.
