Azam Rwanda Premier League side, Bugesera Football Club have resigned coach Ally Bizimungu to replace Gilbert ‘Yaoundé’ Kanyankore, who was sacked last week.
Bizimungu signed a one-year contract until end of the 2017/18 season, and was given the task to finish in the top six in the league.
Last season, Bugesera finished fifth in the 16-team league table standing with 50 points from 13 wins, 11 draws and six defeats. They will begin the campaign against Amagaju FC on October 1.
In 2015/2016, Bizimungu spent one season with the Nyamata-based outfit and guided them to finish in a respectable 7th position with 37 points on their league debut coming from 10 wins, 7 draws and 13 losses.
This season, Bugesera FC will use the Kicukiro Stadium to host their home matches as their Nyamata ground is currently under construction.
The club Secretary General and Spokesperson, Silas Mbonigaba, confirmed Bizimungu’s return for a second spell. He has coached several local teams including SC Kiyovu, Rayon Sports, AS Muhanga and Mukura Victory Sports.
“Yes, we have resigned him on a one-year contract and he has been asked to improve the team’s performance and position. We have tasked him to finish among of the top four in the league,” Mbonigaba said on Friday.
Bugesera have been one of the busiest team in the transfer market.
They have signed several new players including; centre-back Omar Musa from Atletico of Burundi, midfielders Steven Nzigamasabo and Emery Nimubona from Vital’O, forwards Fabrice Ninahazwe from APR FC and Bertin Dusenge from Marines as well as right-back Yannick Bukebuke from Sunrise FC.
Others are; Allain Pekeyake Tuyisenge from AS Kigali, Patrick Ntijyinama from Gicumbi FC, Robert Ndatima from Police FC, Jean Dieu Nsabimana from Pepiniere FC and Rwanda international striker Bernabe Mubumbyi from AS Kigali.
