Mulisa embarks on coaching tutelage

Rwanda head coach Jimmy Mulisa is upbeat about the amount of knowledge he is acquiring in Germany where he is attending a three-week Uefa B Level coaching course for qualified coaches.

Mulisa, who also serves as the assistant technical director at the Rwanda Football Federation (Ferwafa), began the course on September 4 and will go on till September 25 at Hennef Sports Centre in Germany organised and sponsored by Germany Football Federation (DFB)

"Football is changing a lot and as a coach one needs to keep up with the changes. Doing this course in Germany at one of their best sports centers with their best intructors, I have already gained a lot as a coach so far," explains the contented Mulisa.

The 32-year old guided Rwanda to a 1-all draw against a star-studded Ghana side on Saturday at the Accra Sports Stadium in the last round of Afcon 2017 qualifiers much to the contentment of many a fan back home.

He took over from Northern Irishman Johnny McKinstry, who he assisted for a year, and is setting out to lead the way for more Rwandan coaches to lead at the helm of Rwandan football.

Mulisa belongs to the golden generation that qualified and participated at Afcon 2004 in Tunisia, Rwanda’s debut and only appearance at the continent’s premier football showpiece.

He will join a host of other local coaches who have attended the highly rated course including the head coach of the Rwanda women’s national team (She-Amavubi) Grace Nyinawumuntu, Amavubi assistant coach Vincent Mashami (Bugesera FC), former Amavubi interim coach Andre Casa Mbungo, Innocent Seninga and Thierry Hitimana.

Mulisa scored 21 goals in 37 international appearances for Rwanda and will be looking to use his playing experience to further improve the current state of Amavubi.
