Koops confident of final spot



AFC Leopards are getting ready to take on Gor Mahia in the semi-finals of the Football Kenya Federation-run President’s Cup, on Saturday.

Ahead of the match, AFC’s head coach Jan Koops says that they are plotting to make a surge for the title and that they will not veer off track.

“We narrowly missed the Premier League title and we are now focused on taking home the only remaining cup of the year. It is with this objective in mind that we are making proper preparations, learning from the mistakes we made in our last match. I have a feeling come match day, we will give our opponents a difficult time,” said Koops.

The Leopards finished the season ranked third, even though they were contenders from the first to last match.

A win in their last game would have seen them close the year ranked second, but they faltered, falling to a 1-0 defeat to Chemelil Sugar FC. Koops says that they are already over the miss and are looking forward to the future.

“We had the chance but we lost it. However, we cannot continue living in regret. Instead, we should look at where we went wrong, and make sure that we do not fall to the same mistakes again, in future,” he said.

The cup semi-final will be played at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani, starting at 1500hrs.
