Rwandese Gaffer Quits Tanzanian Club After Dispute Over $2000 Salary

Rwandese coach Jean Baptiste Kayiranga quits Alliance Sports Club of Tanzania after dispute over salary.

Rwandese coach Jean Baptiste Kayiranga has called time on his association with Alliance Sports Club of Tanzania after dispute over his $2000 salary.

The erstwhile Rayon Sports coach agreed to take home US$2000 per month but the Tanzanian premier league outfit couldn’t meet the 49-year-old’s asking price.

Kayiranga lasted a mere two months on the club’s managerial helm before opting to leave on mutual consent following the side’s request he takes a pay cut – half of the agreed sum.

Speaking for the first time since departing the Mwanza-based team, situated in the North west of Tanzania, Kayiranga claimed he was even impulsively suggested to coach their female outfit – an offer he turned down.

“Before coming to coach She-Amavubi in Cecafa last month, they (club management) said they had no budget to sign new players at the moment and freed me for three weeks. I also had agreed I was not going to be paid for the month of July. Reporting back to the club from Cecafa, they abruptly suggested to me to manage their women’s team and take a cut-by-half salary – which I declined,” Kayiranga told Times Sport in Tanzania.
