AFC Leopards new coach Nikola Kavazovic has dispelled rumors linking him with a move to arch rivals Gor Mahia.
The Serbian, who joined the Den early last month, tweeted that it “couldn’t happen for a million dollars.”
The former Botswana’s Township Rollers’ manager missed Leopards preseason friendly against Ulinzi Stars at Hope Center – Kawangware Saturday morning, fueling the speculations.
It was alleged that the Serbian was on his way out of the 12-time Kenyan champions one week to the start of the 2018-19 Kenyan Premier League season after falling out with the club’s management.
The 43-year said that “rumours are the biggest evil of African football.”
In ocean of stupidities i heard today, despite my private situations, this laughs me to tears. “Nikola is taking over Gor Mahia”…couldn’t happen for milion $….roumors are biggest evil of African football…
Nikola explained his absence from the touchline, saying he was attending to family matters.
His assistant Tom Juma took charge of the game, recording a 2-1 win with new signing Isaac Kipyegon scoring a brace.
Sorry to be absent for a while for familly matters. Be sure my assistant will take a good care of the team meanwhile in day by day communication.
Gor Mahia are yet replace coach Dylan Kerr, who ditched the club for greener pastures with Black Leopards of South Africa.
