Rwandan Premier League side APR FC's 24 match unbeaten run this season is due to recruiting the right personnel in both the coaching and playing departments, club's secretary-general Lt. Colonel Sylvestre Sekaramba has said.
The military side has played 23 league matches a single Peace Cup tie and are yet to lose any. They have won 17 matches in the league and drawn six scoring 43 goals and conceding 11 goals.
“The club leadership did a lot of work at the end of last season when Rayon Sports won the league. We managed to recruit good players who were not only very good but also had the right attitude. The same method was applied for the coaching staff,” Sekamana was quoted by Rwanda's Times Sport.
The club's head coach Adil Errade Mohamed says that the team can only get better.
“The team has been in incredible form and we expect that to continue when the league resumes as long as the players keep doing what we tell them,” Adil said.
Football activities in the East African nation were suspended on March 15 due to the coronavirus as the government at the time rolled out a raft of measures, including banning large gatherings and urging the public to observe social distancing, as well as limit their movement and to work from home where possible.
Rwanda has recorded 70 positive cases of COVID-19.
