AFC Leopards are set to announce the resignation of coach Tomas Trucha later today.

Trucha tendered his resignation letter to the club on hierarchy on Wednesday morning citing threats to his life.

Sports Plug understands that club chairman Dan Shikanda has been working behind the scenes to convince the Czech Republican to reconsider his decision.

“The coach resigned on Wednesday morning, efforts to convince him to reconsider his decision have bore no fruits,” a club official, who is not authorised to speak for Ingwe, told this publication.

Leopards Assistant coach Anthony Kimani is set to be announced as the interim manager and will take charge of Ingwe’s FKF Premier League match against new boy Bidco United on Sunday.

Shikanda had hinted at the coach leaving when he told journalists on Wednesday that a section of the club’s fans had threatened Trucha’s agent.

He said that threatening the coach was part of big conspiracy to destabilise the club and renege on the success the club has enjoyed under the new management.

“It is unfortunate that some people who call themselves our members are trying to destabilise our team. They have seen us doing well and they are surely not happy,” a visibly angry Shikanda said.

Trucha will go down as one of the shortest serving coaches, having taken charge of only one league match – last weekend’s 2-1 win over Tusker.
