APR FC sacks Kanyankore Gilbert as head coach

Kanyankore Gilbert Yaounde

APR Football Club have dramatically fired their new head coach Gilbert ‘Yaoundé’ Kanyankore just a month into the role which he inherited following the departure of Tunisian Nizar Khanfir at the end of last season.

Kanyankore had signed a one-year contract in July after the club parted ways with Khanfir who had been at the club for about four months.

APR FC Spokesperson Claver Kazungu avowed attributing the decision to the former’s failure to lift the recently-concluded 10th East African Community Military Games (in football competition) with APR.

“He is no longer the club coach because his continuity into the role was subject to winning his first competition with the club which was the EAC Military Games, which he did not, so the club decided to invoke terms of the contract,” Kazungu said.

No sooner has Kanyankore been axed on Amavubi coaching duties than APR FC does so

Kanyankore Gilbert nicknamed Yaounde together with incumbent AS KIGALI head coach and former Amavubi player Eric Nshimiyima handed the national team duties on interim basis after sacking of Irishman Hohnny McKinstry and they were soon relieved only after four days.

Kazungu further explains the club has begun search for a new coach but in the meantime assistant coach Yves Rwasamanzi will be acting as the interim head coach until the club finds a suitable replacement. Rwasamanzi is to lead APR in AS Kigali’s pre-season tournament begins today.
