AFC Leopards head coach Patrick Aussems has cheekily claimed that his team serves fans top most entertainment on match days despite recording losses in some outings.
Speaking after their 2-0 loss against league leaders Tusker at the Thika Municipal Stadium the Belgian claimed that it is a joy to watch the 1998 Kenyan Premier League champions take to the field.
“To be honest with you, I think that when people are watching television and they see AFC Leopards playing they enjoy,” Aussems said in a post-match interview.
The former Simba SC tactician largely blamed their lean squad for the loss revealing that he missed more than ten players against The Brewers due to injury, contract issues and international duty among other reasons make light of the situation that he may be forced to call on his bench in the next outing.
“I was excited to see how my players will play the game and to be honest with you we made a good performance. I just hope that I will have ten or twelve players at the training ground because every game we are losing someone. Maybe I will ask my staff to play in the next game on Tuesday,” Aussems made light of the situation.
Tusker who rode on Chrispinus Onyango goals in separate halves have been have been described by Aussems as clinical who insists they were punished despite putting up a decent show.
“I think they had two opportunities, they scored two times. So 100% efficiency and like the beginning of the season, we missed efficiency because we had these opportunities,” he said.
With just eight games left to play, the seventh loss of the campaign leaves AFC Leopards in third on 43 points as Tusker lead standings with 54 points, seven above closest challengers KCB who play Wazito on Saturday at the same venue.
