BURUNDIAN coach, Cedric Kaze has resigned from Huye-based Turbo King Football league club Mukura Victory Sport following a string of poor results displayed this season.

According to Mukura club’s Secretary General Emmanuel Ntakirutimana, Kaze tendered in his resignation on Monday.

“Kaze personally requested to resign from the club. The club management met on Monday evening to consider his resignation,” added Ntakirutimana.

Kaze joined Mukura on November 1, 2012 and guided the club to a fourth-place finish in the 2012/13 Primus league season and the quarter final round of the Peace Cup tournament.

However, the 2013/14 season has not been successful for the former Burundian international as he only managed to guide Mukura to five wins, four draws and eleven losses in 21 matches played this season. They stand ninth with nineteen points.

The club management has appointed Alphonse Gatera as the head coach. After being sacked from Police, Gatera joined Mukura as the assistant coach in February.

In a related development, the match day 22 of the Turbo King Football League has been brought forward to this weekend following Caf’s decision to give Rwanda U-20 team a bye into the second round of the 2015 Senegal Africa Youth Championship qualifiers.
