The financial troubles facing Kenyan Premier League side AFC Leopards seem to have taken a toll on the club’s head coach Andre Casa Mbungo, who has officially threatened to quit the club over non-payment of his salary and allowances.

The former Rayon Sport coach, who has now gone for four months without pay, has officially written to the club requesting to leave if all his outstanding dues are not cleared within five months.

“He has served the club with 15 days just as it is stipulated in Fifa laws and if he is not paid within the period, then he will quit and sue the club. He has been very patient with the club, but he says he’s reached the tipping point and can’t survive without pay anymore,” a reliable source told SaturdayNation Sport.

AFC Leopards are scheduled to face Tusker on Sunday at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

They are ninth in the KPL standings with 18 points from 12 matches.
