Nairobi, KENYA: Thirteen-time Kenya Premier champions AFC Leopards has unveiled Stewart Hall as their new head coach replacing sacked Belgian Ivan Minnaert.

The Briton penned a two-year deal with Ingwe in event held at the club’s headquarters in Nairobi on Monday, and has been tasked with bringing back the fading glory days at the den.

Hall, who formerly managed Kenyan outfit Sofapaka FC and Tanzanian side Azam FC, will start his reign with a tie against league leaders Tusker next weekend.

Leopards has endured a torrid run this campaign that has left them dangling 13th in the league standings having amassed paltry 30 points with two matches to spare.

Their last outing ended with a humiliating 3-2 defeat away to relegation threatened Sofapaka, a result that saw interim head coach Ezekiel Akwana sent packing.
