afcKenya Premier league soccer giants, AFC Leopards have a new coach.

On Monday, the club officials unveiled their new Dutch coach,  Peter Hendriks de Jong. The coach has been hired on a one year deal and will travel with the squad for the Nile Basin tournament on Tuesday.

Peter Hendriks said he is more than capable of handling the pressure from Ingwe’s trophy-hungry fans, but called on them to be patient.

It will be interesting to see how the bitter rivalry between AFC and Gor Mahia on the pitch will pan out following the new appointment.
