Rwanda Bugesera FC fire coach Nshimiyimana after a series of poor results

Bugesera FC have sacked head coach Eric Nshimiyimana following a series of poor results in the Rwandan Premier League.

Bugesera have been struggling for positive results winning just twice in 11 league games so far this season, a run that has left Nshimiyimana’s employers unimpressed, hence terminating his one-year-and-a-half contract after 10 months at the helm.

A statement from the club confirmed: “The management of Bugesera has mutually terminated Eric Nshimiyimana’s employment contract. The club management will determine the coaches that will temporarily take charge as a search for a new head coach continues.”

The former Amavubi midfielder joined the Bugesera in January 2023 replacing Etienne Ndayiragije who was sacked for poor performance. The Nyamata-based club currently sits 13th on the league table with nine points in 10 games.

Nshimiyimana becomes the fourth coach sacked this season after Maurice ‘Maso’ Nshimiyimana (Etoile de l’Est), Hassan Muhire (Sunrise) and Tunisian Yamen Zelfani who was sacked by Rayon Sports in October.
