Kaze ponders at Mukura exit
Mukura Head Coach Cedric Kaze
Mukura head coach Cedric Kaze has pondered on making an exit from the club if poor results continue to be exhibited at the Huye-based club.
He said on New Year, “I will resign if the club continues to perform badly. The club has only won four matches out of twelve played in the first round of the competition and as a coach, you can’t expect to win the trophy at the end of the season.”
“When I fail, I won’t continue with the club if it is necessary for a reason, and in any case for the club to progress, I will give up the job to safeguard my name and the career I have built,” said the former Prince Louis Rwagasore FC midfielder.
Mukura lies ninth with 13 points having conceded further loses like Esperance and Amagaju.”
The club has not produced pivotal results for the young buoyant Burundian coach, who had a superb coaching career with Atletico, Burundi’s most successful club.
Mukura has lost to Marines (1-0), Etincelles (1-0), APR (1-0), table leaders Rayon Sport (1-0), Police FC (2-0), Musanze (2-0, Kiyovu (1-0) and Espoir (1-0).
In their scramble, they have only managed a goalless draw against Amagaju. Even so, their only optimism was derived from a four match victory against Muhanga, Gicumbi, Esperance and AS Kigali.
In the 2008/2009 and 2011/2012 seasons, Kaze finished second behind Burundian champions Vital’ O which won the 2013 CECAFA Kagame Cup in Darfur Sudan.
He won the 2011/2012 Burundian league, an underlying principle upon which Mukura hired him as the head coach.
