Rayon Sports FC head coach Djuma Masudi has said his target is to reach the later stages of the CAF Confederation Cup and to win the 2016/2017 national league title. The CAF Confederation Cup will kick off in February while the national league season is scheduled to start on October 14.
The 2013 league champions coach said that the team has been undergoing intensive training for the past three weeks ahead of the next league season.
“We are more than ready for every competition ahead of us, but mostly the Continental Cup. We need to reach the crucial stages of the competition, we will need to focus game by game,” said Masudi.
Masudi noted that his team will be aiming for a win in every game.
“We have to make history because our clubs have been inconsistent in African competitions, we have started preparations early so that by next year we are ready,” former Rayon Sports striker added
Also, Masudi said high on the agenda is lifting the league title ‘because we are capable of winning it.’
The blues finished in second place behind champions APR FC last season. But they beat the military side to lift the Peace Cup.
Rayon Sports signed play-maker Shassir Niyonkuru from Burundian giants Vital’O, midfielder Zappy Ishimwe from Sunrise FC, left back Ivan Senyange, striker Frank Lomami from Musanze, winger Nova Bayama from Mukura, and AS Muhanga defender, Jimmy Ange Mutsinzi. They have also signed goalkeeper Evariste Mutuyima from Kenyan side Sofapaka.
Rayon have also promoted four players from their youth team. They include; Willy Amza Cyimana, Idrissa Sengimana, Hassan Hakizimana and Eric Muhanuka.
