Amagaju offer Okoko deal until 2017

Coach Godfrey Okoko.

Southern Province based side Amagaju has offered a three-year contract extension to Burundian born tactician Godfrey Okoko.

The contract extension with former Mukura and La Jeunesse FC technician will see Okoko stay with the Nyamagabe district-based side until 2017.

Southern Province-based Amagaju football club, who finished 11th with 23 points in the just concluded national league season, are set to face-off with second division league side SEC Academy in the quarter-finals of this season’s Peace Cup on June 6 at Muhanga stadium.

Speaking to Saturday Sport in a telephone interview, Okoko said, “It is true I signed a contract extension with Amagaju that will run until 2017. During those three years, I want to take Amagaju to another level, not just fighting to avoid relegation.”

According to club spokesman Jean Claude Kabanda, Okoko also has a big task of developing home-grown talent.

Amagaju will start preparations for the next season after the ongoing Peace Cup with new signings and renewal of contracts for players with expired ones.
