AFC Leopards meet today to deliberate on the circus surrounding the appointment of Portuguese coach Vito Salvado. Club vice chairman Walter Onyino led the ill-fated pursuit of Salvado, who was perceived to have the credentials to take over from former AFC coach Dutchman Jan Koops.
Salvado was on record as having said that he had coached reserve and youth teams of Portuguese giants Benfica.
Onyino said they will, among other things, resolve on whether they will continue the search for a new head coach.
"As it is, Tom Olaba is still in charge of the team as the assistant coach but his role will also come up under discussion," said Onyino. The vice chairman revealed that they had been in touch with the Portugal FA who had made them aware that Salvado had only been officially in charge of one team for the last four years and not three as he had indicated in his testimonials.
"After looking at his credentials, we contacted the Portugal football authorities who gave us different information from his. We felt such an anomaly left a lot to be desired and we decided to quit all dealing with him," said Onyino.
