Rayon Sports has confirmed Masudi Djuma’s return to the club as their new head coach.
Masudi was reappointed on a two-year contract to replace Guy Bukasa who parted ways with the club towards the end of the last season after suffering 1-0 defeat to rivals APR, ending Rayon Sports’ hopes of a league title.
Since then, the club has been led by the technical director Baptiste Kayiranga.

Since departing Rayon Sports, he has coached Simba SC, AS Kigali,Bugesera and Bukavu Dawa.
The former APR, Rayon Sports and Kiyovu striker has been tasked with building a team that can challenge for the title next season after yet another frustrating campaign, which saw them finishing 7th in the league standings.
