Brandts eager to sort out APR future
With his future at the club still uncertain, APR coach Ernie Brandts will meet with the club’s top management this month.
Brandts, who guided APR to a second double (Primus National League and MTN Peace Cup) in as many years, saw out his contract yesterday and wants his future sorted out before flying to Holland for holidays.
While prospects of a new agreement remain doubtful following the club’s failure to win this year’s Cecafa Kagame Cup and a below par display in the Caf Champions League, Focus Sport understands discussions will be held between the pair this month.
“I’m still waiting to hear from the Club management and hope that the situation is sorted out sooner rather than later,” he said.
But it looks like APR is in no hurry to have new talks with the former Netherlands international.
“The board still has to sit down and make a decision on Brandts’ future so we will inform you on the progress,” said APR Secretary General Adolphe Kalisa.
Brandts took over from Eric Nshimiyimana in 2010. Other coaches who have managed APR include fellow Dutchmen Eric Paske and René Feller, Jean Marie Ntagwabira, Andy Mfutila and Jacob Mule among others.
