Rwanda Ex-Sofapaka coach Haringingo takes charge at struggling Bugesera FC

After being shown the exit door by FKF Premier League outfit Sofapaka, coach Francis Haringingo has returned home to Rwanda to take over at topflight side Bugesera FC.

The struggling Rwandan club announced on Tuesday the acquisition of Haringingo, who agreed to coach the Nyamata-based club in a deal that will run until the end of the season and will take over from Eric Nshimiyimana, who was sacked on Tuesday, November 14, due to a string of poor results in the Rwandan Premier League.

Haringingo is not new in Rwandan football, having previously coached Mukura VS, Kiyovu SC and Rayon Sports. The Burundian won the Peace Cup twice, first with Mukura in 2018 and last season with Rayon Sports before joining Kenyan Premier League side Sofapaka in August.

The club, however, showed him the exit door in October after losing four straight games in five games in charge. His first assignment as Bugesera FC coach will be against former club Rayon Sports, on Friday, November 24, at Kigali Pele Stadium. Bugesera currently sit 13th on the league table with nine points from 10 matches, a run that got Nshimiyimana sacked.
