Cedric Kaze is set to be unveiled officially as Young Africans Football Club head coach

Burundian national Cedric Kaze, a holder of CAF “A” license is expected to arrive in Tanzania on Thursday, 15 October 2020 to take over the head coach role at Young Africans Football Club.

The Germany trained tactician who studied at Hennef Sports School takes over Serbian Zlatko Krmpotić.

Krmpotić was shown the exit door in a rather surprising decision despite winning five and drawing once in the six matches Young Africans handled.

The Serbian had only spent 37 days on the job since taking over from Belgian Luc Eymael.

Kaze comes to Young Africans with the worthy experience having previously handled the Burundi National Teams for the U-17, U-20, U-23 as well as the senior team, covering as many as 70 international matches between 2009-2015.

Kaze was an analyst for the 2009 U-21 World Cup champion, German that had the likes of Ozil, Kroos, Khedira, Mauel Neuer and Hummels.

He was awarded the best coach in East and Central Africa in 2012.
