Kenyan Premier League giants AFC Leopards has appointed their third head coach of the season with the club confirming the arrival of Rwandese Andre Casa Mbungo on a one and half year deal.
In a statement, Leopards noted: "We have a new head coach. AFC Leopards has appointed Rwandese Andre Cassa Mbugo as our new coach on a one and half year deal.
"Andre replaces Marco Vasiljevic who parted ways with the club on Monday. Welcome to the den Andre."
The former Rwandese national team head coach has a tough task on his hands with the club having only won two of their ten league games played.
In his native Rwanda, Mbungo has worked with Police FC and Kyouvu Stars. He worked with current Gor Mahia striker Jacques Tuysienge at Police FC and Francis Mustafa at Kyovu.
Mbungo is the only coach in Rwandan football history who has ever won Peace Cup titles with two different clubs. He first won the cup with AS Kigali in 2013 before repeating the feat with Police FC in 2015, then captained by current Tuyisenge.
Mbungo started his coaching career in 1993 as a youth football coach in different academies in Burundi and then Rwanda before he was appointed head coach of APR FC junior team, from 1998 through 2002. Later, he joined Rwandatel FC where he was put in charge of the second division team between 2002 and 2004. He moved to AS Kigali (2004-2006), then called Les Citadins, where he served in a similar position.
Following two relatively successful years with AS Kigali, Mbungo moved to SC Kiyovu in the 2006/2007 season. From 2007-2009, he was in charge of Police FC before switching to second division side SEC Academy where he worked for three years (2009 to 2012).
