Rwanda: Mukura's Kaze Targets MTN Peace Cup

Mukura Victory Sport new head coach Cedric Kaze has put his first priority to winning this year's MTN Peace Cup.

The Burundian coach told Times Sports that he will put "all emphasis and use the all possible ways" to make sure the MTN Peace Cup goes to Huye.

"The league is still possible but my emphasis will be on going for the Peace Cup because it is the competition where anyone can beat anyone," the former Atletico coach said.

He added, "We have good quality players and I believe we can match anyone in this league, but as coach, my priority is to try and win the cup. It is going to hard but we will give it our best shot possible."

With the league on hold until after Amavubi's international friendly against Nambia next week, Kaze, who has his whole squad to train with in the next free days, is targeting a haul of 10-13 points from the remaining five games before the end of the first round.

"We want everything possible to get between 10 and 13 of the possible 15 points so that we can close the gap between us and the first team" he noted.

According to the club's Secretary General Olivier Mulindahabi, Mukura has a budget of Rwf150m for the season.

Mulindahabi said that last year they were targeting to be in top four. This year after increasing the budget, they hope to win the league.

The Southern Province side, who were tipped to win this year's league title after finishing third last season, have managed eight points in eight matches.

"This year, our challenge is to win the league. We came so close last season and we want to keep working hard and see where it leaves us at the end of the season and this the task to our new coach," an expectant Mulindahabi said.

Mukura will take on Etincelles at Umuganda stadium when the league returns.
