Kigali - English-born Stephen Constantine will take over as
the national coach of Rwanda, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) said
on its website on Thursday.
The 51-year-old Constantine, who worked at Millwall and also
coached Nepal, India, Malawi and Sudan, was last at Greek club Apollon Smyrni.
Rwanda Football Association (Ferwafa) president Vincent
Degaule Nzamwita told www.cafonline.com a contract with Constantine would be
finalised over the weekend in Tunisia where Rwanda is scheduled to face Libya
in the first leg of the first round of qualifiers for the 2015 Nations Cup.
"We have talked and agreed in principle with
Constantine to take over the job. We will meet in Tunisia before our game
against Libya because he wishes to watch the game before we can conclude all
the contract details," Nzamwita said.
Constantine replaces Eric Nshimiyimana whose contract was
not renewed last month. Assistant coach Andre Cassa Mbungo will manage Sunday's
qualifier against Libya.
