Kenya:Is Tomas Trucha plotting his way out of Leopard’s den?

Kenyan Premier League side AFC Leopards kicked off the 2020/2021 season over the weekend on high by registering a 2-1 win against the 2016 champions Tusker FC.
Tusker opened the scoring via David Majak, but Robinson Kamura and Elvis Rupia struck a goal each to take the 13-time champions to the top of the table.
Ahead of their next Sunday match against the newly promoted Bidco United, daunting information has emerged that might destabilize the team’s spirit.
Coach Thomas Trucha has claimed that his life is in danger following threats to his agents by people claiming to be supporters of the club.
“The coach’s agent has been threatened by people claiming to be our supporters, and the coach doesn’t feel safe here,” said Dan Shikanda, the club’s chairman.
He added, “I talked to him yesterday, and he says because his representative has been threatened, he doesn’t think he is safe.”
Prior, it was speculated that the former Botswana’s Township Rollers boss is pushing his way out of the club over interference.
It was reported that Trucha is accusing some of the club officials of pushing for some players’ fielding on match days.
Speaking during the launch of the team’s shirt sponsor, Betsafe, Shikanda revealed that they would give away forward on Thursday.
“We will have a press conference tomorrow with the coach, and he will make a decision whether he will stay or leave,” said Shikanda.
