Kenya/Zambia: AFC Leopards Secretly Drop Newly-Signed Zambian Forward

29 November 2018

The same player was seen smiling alongside club secretary general Oscar Igaida during his unveiling early this month.

AFC Leopards have severed ties with Zambian winger Shadreck Chimanya barely two weeks after signing him on a two-year contract.

Nairobi News understand the former Nchanga Rangers player left the country over the weekend after failing to make the grade.

This development marks a strange turn of events after the same player was seen smiling alongside club secretary general Oscar Igaida during his unveiling early this month.

NOT GOOD ENOUGH

But it seems the player failed to impress the club's new coach Nikola Kavazovic.

"He is not good enough. The technical team says he will not add much to the team. When we are signing a foreign player, the coach insists he has to be of exceptional quality. Not just any other player," a club official said.

Separate reports, however, indicate that the player and the team's management fell out after the player demanded upfront payment of his signing bonus estimated to be worth Sh700,000.
