New AFC Leopards coach Dorian Marin

AFC Leopards have confirmed former Nalubaale and URA Romanian coach, Dorian Marin as their new coach.

This was confirmed by club the Ingwe organising secretary Timothy Lilumbi who also revealed the tactician will arrive in the country before end of the week to replace Briton Stewart Hall who threw in the towel at the club following a loss at Tusker over the weekend.

“I can confirm that Dorian is our new coach; he will arrive in the country later this week,” Lilumbi is quoted on Futaa.com. “He will meet Coach Hall for a briefing before he links up with the team in Tanzania,” he added.

Lilumbi further revealed that besides Hall who requested to leave, there will be no further changes on the technical bench.

We are not making any other changes in the technical bench because we want them to help the incoming coach acclimatize.

Dorian managed now defunct Nalubaale in 2008 when he replaced George Ssemwogerere and financial difficulties at the side saw him cancel his two year contract in September that year and later had a brief stint with URA.

The 57 year old also had stints with the Eritrea National team and their U-17 side and his most recent coaching job was in Ghana with King Faisal Babes.

He finds the Ingwe in a stale situation having won none in their previous seven league outings and lie 12th on the 18-team log in the Kenya Premier League.

The former Kenyan champions is home to Ugandan players Yakubu Ramadhan, Allan Kateregga and midfielder Keziron Kizito who has joined the club from Vipers.
