AFC Leopards is used to winning the FKF Shield Cup and will not shy away from doing the same this year, Robinson Kamura has warned.

Kamura who seems to have lost his captaincy at the club following accusations of sabotaging Ingwe in a wage row, says the club is determined to win a double this season.

“We have two things to fight for, the league and the Shield Cup. We are used to winning the Shield so the final is a big one,” he said in an interview on Tuesday afternoon at Camp Toyoyo Grounds.

The 2013 Shield Cup winners battle arch-rivals Gor Mahia in the final on July 4 and the midfielder insists a repeat of their 2013 triumph over their ‘in-laws’ is inevitable.

“It is a good event for the fans but to us it is a job. It’s long since AFC last won a trophy, and now that we have one hand on it (Shield Cup), we will do everything to win it,” the 26-year-old oozed optimism.

The Patrick Aussems coached side has seen a dip in form, falling off from top spot to third but the outgoing captain is adamant the club will end its league drought.

“The league is a marathon. We will fight until the last minute because we also want the title,” he said.

AFC Leopards last won the Kenyan Premier League in 1998 and Kamura hopped to be the man to lead the den to a league triumph after being appointed captain in 2018, but has since lost his leadership position to Isaac Kipyegon.
