Louis Twahirwa Dodo said that Mutarambirwa was taken on board as an assistant coach and they believe former team-mates will respect him to be execute his new role.
“We have chosen him as our assistant coach. He fits well in our structure and we hope this would be a good opportunity for him to develop his coaching career working together with the coach Sam Ssimbwa who knows very well football,” said Mutarambirwa.
Police hosts Amagaju at Kicukiro turf on Sunday in the tenth round of the Turbo King league. Mutarambirwa started his role when Police beat Rayon Sports to win the maiden Ombudsman Cup last Sunday.
