Former Leopards coach kicked out of posh Westlands apartment

Former AFC Leopards coach Dorian Marin is reportedly stranded in Nairobi after being kicked out of an apartment provided to him by the football club.

The tenure of the Romanian coach lasted just 16 days in June after falling out with senior players in the squad. He has since been living in an apartment in Westlands paid for by the club as they negotiate a divorce package.

AFC Leopards has since hired Kenyan coach Robert Matano on an interim basis.

Sources at the club have told Nairobi News that they are only willing to pay Marin for the exact number of days he worked for the club, but the trainer insists on being paid at least a million shillings in compensation.


Consequently, talks between the two parties broke down last week leading to Marin being kicked out of the apartment.

The club has been paying sh150k rent for the apaertment. It is the same apartment used by former coach Stewart Hall.

“We asked the landlord to serve him notice because the club cannot continue maintaining his lifestyle here and yet he isn’t an employee. We have no contract with him,” a Leopards official explained.

Marin meanwhile could not be reached for comment even as Leopards claim they had provided him with a return air ticket to leave the country.
