Rayon offloads five players
Five players have been sacked by former champions Rayon Sports ahead of the new season.
The development was confirmed by Rayon Sports club chairman TheogeneNtampaka over the weekend.
The players are; defenders IddiNshimiyimana, James Mukubya and Jean Claude Rwaka as well as strikers Samson Jakeshi and Jacques Cyubahiro.
Ntampaka said, “It’s part of our efforts to build a stronger squad that we have released players whose performance was below par last season. After assessing their performance, we found it fitting to release them so they can look for other clubs,”
The Nyanza-based side finished in the second position last season behind APR FC and are now in the hunt for quality player to bolster their squad ahead of the new season which is scheduled to begin next month.
They are particularly looking to fill gaps that have been created after the departure of Burundi striker Cedric Amissi, who has since joined Mozambique’s Chibuto FC, as well as Rwanda internationals DjamarMwiseneza, who moved over to archrivals APR, and MeddieKagere, who has joined Albania’s top division side KF Tirana.
The Blues, who won the league title in the 2012/13 season, are currently competing in the CecafaKagame Club Championships and are through to the last eight alongside the other local sides in the tournament Police and APR.
