Rwandan Premier League side Bugesera FC, have part ways with head coach Justin Bisengimana after being in charge of the team for only five months.
The announcement was officially made by the club president Jean Claude Gahigi on Saturday, saying that due to poor performance, the club management has decided to sack the coach.
Bugesera FC is struggling in the Rwanda Premier League after a poor run of form. Out of eight matches played the team has registered two wins and draws and lost four matches, they sit eleventh in the table with eight points, ten points shy of table leaders Police FC.
Justin Bisengimana the former Sunrise FC coach was under pressure and took blame of the club’s poor start in the last five league matches.
In the 2-1 defeat against Rayon Sports FC, the game came to an end with the coach looking like a dead man walking.
It was another bad day for coach Bisengimana having lost 2-0 to Etincelles FC, as if that was not enough they drew 1-all with Marines, lost 2-1 to the Law Enforcers Police at that time everything started getting worst for the coach.
Without a head coach, Bugesera will face Mukura VS and Kiyovu VS in the next two upcoming fixtures after the international break.
As it stood before he got fired, sources at Bugesera FC insisted the coach was in imminent danger of losing his job especially after a horror show against Rayon Sports FC when he started Peter Otema and Jimmy Mbaraga on the bench and claimed that Francis Mustapha was injured yet the player denied and said he was fine.
Quite how that was part of the case, a reason why analysts believed a place in the top five looked well beyond Bugesera’s reach under Coach Justin guidance.
Bugesera FC statistics this season under Bisengimana were alarming and if the club had any sort of ambition then he was already out of a job. The other reason said is that, the players were totally out of touch with their coach.
The club’s problems have been seen in the defense where they have conceded 14 goals either; the attacking line is not performing. They have not seen any of their striker netting more than four goals in eight games.
In all departments they have been a mess under Justin, they cannot score, they do not create chances and they cannot defend. Both Jimmy Kibengo and Djihad Rucogoza have scored 3 and 4 goals respectively.
Though not confirmed, sources inside the club have said that the talks are underway with former Rayon Brazilian coach Roberto Oliveira Robertinho.
