Stewart Hall faced the media for the first time since becoming AFC Leopards coach on Monday (Nov. 31) afternoon and declared that the club will aim at strengthening youth structures instead of signing old age players.
A highly-anticipated introduction did not disappoint as Hall vowed to turn things around if he was accorded the support required.
In a bullish first press conference in front of a battery of journalists who filled the club’s secretariat at Vision Plaza Mombasa Road, the Englishman said he would only consider players under the age of 24 as he aims at bringing back Ingwe back into a more organized playing unit.
And the new coach who is understood to have signed a two-year renewable deal said he will take time to assess the players available at the moment and make his judgment on the same in the next two weeks.
With the club’s rich history also key in this presser, Hall outlined the need of Ingwe getting back to winning ways and making the fans happy again.
‘I know this club very well. A rich tradition and history that is unmatched by many teams around.’
‘I know we have gone for long without success but all is not lost for we will do our best to ensure that we get back to the path they deserve,’ he said.
It was earlier reported that the former Azam and Sofapaka coach was going to pocket around $4,500 but he came out and said that he took a salary cut because he is a man on a mission, a mission to bring success to AFC Leopards.
‘I can tell you today that I have taken a salary cut because I want to stay here and enjoy every moment with you guys.’
