Former AFC Leopards players yesterday lauded the appointment of Tom Juma and Fred Ambani as the team’s tacticians.

Led by Gerald Asibwa, the legends said they had confidence in the abilities of the two who are also former football players.

“I want to wish legend TJ and legend Fred Ambani all the best in their new roles of steering our club to greater heights. This is the beginning of the end of FIFA bans that the club has lately been engulfed in,” said Asibwa.

Another legend, Nick Yakhama, said he believed that the team was in safe hands under Juma as coach and Ambani as his assistant.

“These are professionals who understand the dynamics of our local and continental football and I trust that they will help Ingwe end the trophy drought,” he said.

They said other local premier league teams should take a cue and have confidence in coaches from the country.

The legends also hailed Leopards for picking two students of Musingu Boys High School.

“We should trust our local talent and develop it. The Ingwe management and technical bench should, thus, count on our support,” they said.
